Even though hand detailing isn't my favorite aspect of painting model horses, I DO like how it starts to pull the various aspects of the model together and make it look more real and finished.
For the white markings, I am using this:
Being the lazy soul that I am, I thought I would just skip all that measuring and mixing and thinning and simply drip a bit of airbrush paint into my palette cup, drop a few drips of airbrush thinner into it, swish it around and apply it.
I would say the coverage is similar to my tedious mix, but it goes on much smoother and dries fairly fast. I think I will stick with using slightly thinned airbrush paint for white markings from now on.
For the mane and tail, I "cheated" and used a mix of craft acrylics:
Right now the mane and tail look way too yellow, but I will be toning that down with some layers of airbrushed body color and probably some layers of darker mixes. Stay tuned.....
