I want to get into painting model horses (particularly Breyer). I've done some research and watched some videos. I don't know whether I should use pastels or acrylic paint. If anyone here has experience with painting and customizing model horses, could you give me some beginner advice?
I've used acrylic and oil. I'm not sure about pastels, but I would recommend acrylic because it drys fast and is easy to work with. I like to, when doing paint horses, mix some water and white paint to use as an outline for the white patches. I've attached a pictures a model I painted and put the mane/tail on.
Thanks :) There isn't really anything special about using acrylic. I put on the lightest color first then keep adding darker shades on top of that, but it really just depends on your particular style. I like using water with it to keep it from drying as fast/ help with blending.
