    Today I have started to paint the rifle .
    Of course, the weapon has a historical template , an English musket from the early 17th Century ... :

    [IMG]

    For that time - we are witnessing the innovation of the conversion from matchlock to flintlock ! - a highly modern weapon!
    Intensive trade relations between England and Russia at least since the time of Tsar Ivan IV (1530 - 1584) established - a plausibility , as the English weapon may have come to Russia, is thus present .

    Since there was not a significant weapons production in Russia at the time , contributed almost all Cossacks " exotic " took "exotic" weapons around with them - though usually which the Polish-Lithuanian or - more often - Ottoman- Tatar origins.
    Today I painted the wood parts and antschieden me aware of a relatively light wood , which

    I have taken these colors ... :

    After the first paint-step...:

    When I was ready , I made with seemingly countless small and tiny dots and dashes of various mixtures of the same colors as possible a realistic-looking "wood grain " ... :

    Please look closely: Andy, has the gun muzzle sculpted open - drilling for the purpose of more accurate portrayal is omitted, then!

    The weapon is as hoped one of the "eye-catcher" of the figure become, I think ...

    Next is the painting of the sheep-fur to be seen at the chest and shoulder area.
    Coats made ​​of this material were widespread among the Cossacks as a col - and weather protection , many with hoods, which were so spacious that even the high fur cap fit underneath.

    These coats were called " Ishik " or " Ton" , both of which date back to Tatar word stems .

    They were worn with the fur side out or worn inside.

    At the Caucasus Cossacks knew ( and know! ) also sheepskin coats But thery are black and called " Burka " .

    Andy has sculpted the fur on the outside to the better impression sake.

    So today Sheepskin painting is painted.
    You can either the familiar bright (but not white ! ) fur paint ...

    [IMG]

    Or even a black one... :

    [IMG]

    For me, the coat will be black because I want to have the clothes of our friend as dark as possible .

    I took these colors ... :

    [IMG]

    Pure Black I suppose only for the deepest shades. The high-lights I painted my pure white.
    Now my Cossack looks like this...:

    30. Day, 2. December 2013

    Today I paintedthe braids which close the Kaften my VCossack forward on the chest.

    I want to paint them silver, but in a way, that it shines only slowly and not gloss like metal.

    So I have the braids eretmal pre-painted with a mixture of "German Grey" and "Light Grey" ...:

    Then a thin Outlining came down to the belt on the chest.

    And finally I have the places where light falls, which are so shimmer silver, brushed very carefully with silver.

    [IMG]

    The subtile shiny-effect is good to be seen on this picture...:

    Looks good Martin, that's the same technique I use for "silver metallic" lace. You have executed it very well.

    Actually I wanted to "dive "the other side of the chest of the caftan in blue color ...

    But then my eyes fell again on the left arm of our Cossack - and I was was not satisfied at once, not with the sculpted drapery and neither with my painting in the shoulder/neck area ...:

    The drapery is certainly not culpted wrong, but it comes to me too "fragmented" over - and I've found already while painting that I ever wanted to paint "against" the sculpting. The result looks accordingly ...:

    [IMG]

    Well...:
    - Coulor away with isopropyl alcohol
    - sculpted a new (and I think a better) drapery

    This way it looks now...:

    [IMG]

    [IMG]

    Tomorrow I'll do the "fine-tuning" ...

    Photography is now once again a matter of luck, for it is grey and dark outside.
    Tomorrow I will try, to make better Photos...

    Thanks again, Colin! (y)

    34 Day 6 December 2013

    The left chest part of my little Cossack has now become even blue.

    And I have the area between the tresses interposed a few cautious lights.

    This (lights set) I then also made ​​on the other side of the chest. These few brush strokes now unfold a beautiful effect!

    And because just once briefly the sun came through,'ve also can make reasonably decent pictures of it.

    And the newly-made folds in the shoulder area of the arm is now even easier to see ...:

    Looking very good Martin. You're rework of the sleeve drapery turned out well. Can't wait to see how the whole coat looks when it's done.
    Carry on, sir!

    The next step: leather paint!

    Our Cossack wears three leather straps over the chest. I have decided, they all portray with other colors - leather can indeed have so many colors.

    The first - wide - belt is according to "new leather", so look quite bright.

    I did it with these colors ...:

    Well...:
