    The cape is amazing Ivo - thanks for the step by step photos. If I might ask, what material did you use to make the cape and what tools/technique did you use to manipulate it into those wonderful folds?

    Thanks in advance for sharing your work and expertise,

    the cap is done using the same lead foil that you can find inside the MM kits, obviously I get a bigger piece. To work and make folds I use a philatelic tongs returning the fold on themselves as many time I consider necessary

    That's going to look wonderful. The foil is a very old trick , but one of the best ever.

    here the painting done in acrilics, I choosed a greysh green instead of grey for the cap to have more unifroity of the colours.

    next step is the Horse, we have to consider that we are in early winter, horse has got long hair.

    I tried to paint the horse in thsi condition, with winter hair. I paint it mixing the oil colour with Oleoplasto from W&N

    here the result
