    Hi planeters!
    I start painting Knight Pegaso. This order is unusual and I need to draw a picture of horse rugs. I think it would be fun.
    Well, Robert de Masmines Chevalier de la Toison d'Or. 54mm.
    [IMG] Necessary details.

    Seams and small burr I cleaned, primed and partially outlined the color of the horse.
    In order to "scratch" the horse I have two shades are mixed - basic and lighter hair.
    The main color of the hair in the shade.
    Light tone of the hairs on the volume. Some schemes hard not to the direction of the hair, but it is better that they are aimed simply and clearly, without distracting the attention, much like in the diagram.
    Half of the work on the hairs. As long as there is no glaze and glare.Brush I use the most simple. Half of the pile I shut with duct tape. This will be very good brush.
    I left the color of the inside coat. I mixed the red for the ornament, while without the darkest and the lightest. I will only use acrylic paint.

    Hi Hart

    Will follow your knight for sure.
    May I ask why you are taping half the pile of hair of your paint brush ?

    Is this done to keep the point of the brush while you apply paint or to prevent paint from going to the ferrule ?

    thank you !

    I used the tape to not bend such long nap.

    A small continuation draw the horse.

    Adding light spots, the first and second glazing.
    Glaze white "socks" with sand color.
    Glare on the "socks".
    Small pattern.
    Remained hoof, but I will now prepare a horse cloth.

    Dark red base without smooth transitions and search for simple but sufficiently attractive main element in the ornament.
    Location in a simple checkered pattern starting points. It is better to use light and dark tone.
    Drawing the primary element. Again, dark and light tone.

    I can only say this is the best possible way...WTF dude!!! I have been on your blog and seen some of your other masterpieces (for lack of a better word), this is shaping up to be an incredible piece of artwork.

    :) Thank you, Anthony. My thanks also everyone. Although the need to carry out several Orders, but I hope to come back here.

    Yep, I think this is going to be another stunner. I also had a look at your Blog and was completely blown away. Great work

    Thank you, Ben.
    Again a small continuation the knight. For almost a week I did not have time for him.
    Kant inside.
    I soldered half in two places. I used ordinary soldering iron, flux and a piece of solder.
    Soldered the front segment, and then the neck. After that has smoothed out seams.
    Soldered two more cut. Then made alkaline solution of soda and detergent, which erased the remnants of solder solution acid and washed with water seams.
    Inside the narrow seams closed up thick paint.
    Outlined the color of hooves and three lilies on each.

    I'm awestruck at the way you paint some pieces and then solder them together-I have several Russian Studio pieces in my collection and always wondered how the patterns were achieved in areas inaccessible to a normal brush. Amazing skills and thank you for taking time out to demonstrate.

    Thank you all.
    I keep going.
    After a week of sculpting I again found time for horsecloth.
    Soldered the horse to base. Painted a neutral white color based paintings. Dark color marked the places that are not visible because of the reins and legs.
    I do not know what to draw. I'll take a composition from head. The principal figure is the Goddess of hunting Diana. She is with a longbow on a horse.
    I start draw a portrait.
