Now before I forget, here is the ‘recipe’ I used for the canteens and backpacks all done with Vallejo paints:
Base Color: Charred Brown
First Highlight: Dark Fleshtone
Second Highlight: Beasty Brown
Third Highlight: Cobra Leather
Fourth Highlight: Desert Yellow
First Wash: Desert Yellow and Water 3:1 mix
Second Wash: Dark Fleshtone and Water 5:1 Mix
Final Wash: Black and Water 9:1 Mix
And the Last Highlight after all the washes:
After all this work I got the results I wanted, you can see the results on the canteen and knife from my last update.
Now for the two I took pictures of today, shotgun and cowboy hat:
I particularly like the backpack on the cowgirl, I don’t remember what mini its from, it was sitting in the parts bin!
The hat came out pretty well even if it is my first attempt at a green stuff hat. Ill have to redo all the bases eventually, right now im just getting the concept done before I just to another great idea... like kilts!
