PostSubject: I started with repainting - Schleich horses   Mon Jul 03, 2017 5:16 pm

I started with repainting a few days ago.

The first model is the older andalusian mare from Schleich. I am hornest, this is a difficult model to start with, but I didn't think about it before. I will take some time I finished her, the shading is still missing at all.
But here are the first pics of her:

Great colour cheers

I so totally agree ! One has to try it to realise how darned difficult it is to repaint a model tongue Laughing

But you are doing really well !
Especially I notice the socks and the hooves Applause

It look nice already.
I can say, if you want to make it ''prepped'' with white you can better buy a spray paint with.
Not make it white with your brush , it will not be as smooth as a spray paint.
But for the color already GREAT choice and i look nice.

That is very nice, the colors suits here!
Watch for the amount of water on you brush before getting paint on the brush, if there is very much water the paint will finn out a lot and will be lighter on the horse, and if there is little tot non water it wil be darker. Just a little advice Very Happy

Thanks for the advice :)

But the problem is the colour, it just doesn't cover really good. I think I have to spend some money in better colour someday :) i have to paint 3-4 times before the colour covers.

maybe that wil help ! :)
It could also be that the white u use reject the other paint.. then it will be maybe woth it to try another prep white.

Thanks everyone. They are already reserved Sad i will miss them Very Happy Some kind of funny, that those repaints mean so much to me. But it is impossible, that I keep them all, although I love them all.

Of course you love them, - it takes love and time to make such nice repaints Very Happy

But I can see that you are very industrious, so you already have new ones again cheers

I am especially impressed by the overo-paint !!! It must be very difficult to make those uneven borders between dark and white, isn't it ? Very Happy
Also you seem to be an expert in making beautyful eyes Applause

You are right Susanne, spotted horses like pinto horses are really hard to paint, it took a long time, until it looked like that :)
But i will do more, and maybe it will be easier for me someday.

I won't say, that I am an expert. These small eyes are so difficult to paint. Sometimes they look good, and I am lucky. Sometimes my hand shakes just at the moment I paint an eye, and I have to start again :)
