    Hey everyone,

    Here's a couple shots of the Pegaso 54MM piece I completed in Vallejos and Mr. Metals.



    A weak try at creative photography :) :

    Superb painting Bob. One day I have to learn how to paint horses and have a go at this one. As I would like to paint with acrylics and love the way you have painted this horse, maybe you can tell me how you did it.

    Keep up the great work,

    Bob, I probably asked you this before but forgot the answer. How did you do the heraldry on the horse's cover? It looks worthy of at least 4 or 5 Rusty's (y) . Seriously though, I really like all the colors on this and how theyr'e not overly dirty. Something I keep doing to all of my figs.

    Thanks again,
    Jim Patrick

    A show piece for sure! It's a beautiful figure, Bob, all around! I'm with Gino, how'd you do the horse? I'd also love to know how you applied the Mr. Metal paints - the sheen of the armor is excellent.

    Post more of your stuff - so far your work is a joy to look at! :lol:

    Hi Bob

    Great figure beautifully painted and finished, that groundwork is something else

    Hi there Bob..what a great piece of work, I really like the way you handled the heraldry, it's very tidy. Also the Gunze Sangyo metals have come up a treat and they add some real quality..and the base work is superb, overall very well presented, fabulous (y) (y)

    All the best

    Hey Everyone,

    My heartfelt thanks to all of you for your kind comments. I enjoyed painting this piece, but it seemed easy to accomplish when your working with such a superb sculpt. This Pegaso piece is definitely first rate (y)

    Gino and Nancy,
    For the painting of the horse, what I normally do is block in all of the base colors (to include the shadowed areas). By that I mean, I painted the browns, blacks and whites first. For blending, I took the two meeting colors and "feathered" them together, with addtional paint, while wet. I find that additional blending of the colors, works best for me when I "wash" the area with the diluted base color of the horse. I do this on all of the areas except the white. When I do this, it is mainly personal taste as to when it is done. I find that the wash (after about 7 washes), blurs the definition line between the two colors, whether it be the highlighted or shadowed area. Make sure that each wash has dried before appling another. This will keep the wash from building up and basically having it drip down the figure. I finalize the piece by going back and apply the detail painting (ie hair, veins, etc.). I hope this helps.

    As for the Mr. Metals, I painted the bare metal (or place a wash on it since the paint is so thin) with burnt iron and steel, allowed this to dry for about 30 minutes, then took a Dremel Tool on low speed with a small, soft brush attachment and polished the areas. To give it an aged look, I have washed the area with a diluted mix of burnt umber and black (about 70% burnt umber and 30% black), and let this settle in the crevices. I let this dry about 5 minutes and then go back with a soft cloth dipped in alcohol and wipe off the raised surfaces. I finalize the piece by going back over it with the Dremel Tool. Make sure the wash has dried or you run the risk of slinging it all over the previously painted areas when you go at it with the Dremel. Ouch! :lol:

    As for the heraldry, I approach it the same way I do the horse. I will usually stick with one color (lets say the yellow) and place the successive colors on my palette. This is where a color wheel comes in very handy. I blend the colors as I did with the horse. The cool thing about this piece is the heraldry is sculpted in place and helps you stay in the lines :lol:

    Thanks again,

    Bob Waltman
