PostSubject: white paint colours   Wed Sep 24, 2014 6:08 pm

Hello, I'm not exactly sure that this is posted in the correct forum, sorry.

But what i'm inquiring about is what colours create a nice off-white? I'm particularly interested in white/grey-ish horses but I might try and tackle some other animal figures in other colours if I gain enough experience. Oh and I shall be painting with acrylic paints if that helps Very Happy sunny

I'm not quite sure what you mean. I like antique white and ivory for off-white acrylics, but for base white horses I prime in white.

I'm either not sure what you mean, but when I paint gray or white horses I first paint the base with gesso, or white acrylic color. Then I just add darker shades as much as I like using pastels or acrylics. Sorry if that was not what you asked Very Happy
