    Default Kraye wants a Dapple Gray horse

    Has anyone out there had any success in painting a Dapple Gray horse with P3 or Reaper Master Series Paints? I am trying to do so with my Kraye model and cannot seem to get a result that I am happy with.





    Looking for something like the examples above

    I'd love to but that isn't possible any time soon. Baby+cats = no photo studio time.

    I did mine by painting the horse as if it were a solid light grey color, then stippling on some white with the end of an old drybrush. It worked surprisingly well, considering I was just doing it to see if it would work.

    I would also think that some sponge painting via the foam that comes in the blister packs would work fairly well.

    Thanks CG. I'll give that a try on some scrap paper to see if I can get that to work.

    Another interesting idea from GreenJello. I'll try that too!

    That blister foam is great for painting applications. It should work well for dappling. Also, stippling with a brush works well too.

    The horse pictures in real life almost look like there could be a grey undercoat that's shaded, and then have some watered down white applied spots or with a sponge. The white on the horse almost looks transparent against the grey. The figure may look unfinished though with the white being transparent, but just a thought I suppose.

    Looks good so far, Dan, but I think if you're going to stay that dark with your gray, you might want to bring the dappling up a notch or two.

    ETA: I have always loved that Mordheim article. So helpful.

    Your horse looks pretty nice as it is, but I'm thinking some dry brushing and some sponge painting would be the way to finish it up.

    If you're VERY serious about your horse painting, look up kathrynloch on CMON, she's pretty much a horse painting expert.
