Awesome! Did you paint them with a brush? Is it stencil? Or transfers like I make? Always eagee to learn new methods for customising!
Cheers.

Hi,

thx for your feedback.

I paint with hand and skull color (vallejo) and a brush, but i thought about a fluorescent color
next step.

Did you, or are you going to, put a clear coat over the paint? 

I am just wondering how durable the Valejo paints are - I've never used them, but I know their reputation for being excellent for painting scale figures.

After all that work, I would not want the paint to come off.

Hi Friends,

ok here some answer:

cowabounga:

i dont use a stencil !! I only paint it with a brush and a the Vallejo color.
I dont transfer the horse skull on the horse !!  ;)
I paint a long time freehand, the only help i need ,i had the horse skeleton as print on a paper , this lay left from the horse.
I look on the paper than i paint some bones, again look and paint, thats all.

Im a airbrusher ,too
But if i use airbrush system i make a stencil but this time i dont have the time for a
perfect stencil so i paint it freehand.


Wesley Myers:
i dont use a clear coat this time, i love this vallejo colors, the adhesion is
really good, but my childs dont play with the horses yet.

world greets

Andi

Ps: THX FOR YOUR FEEDBACK !!  :wave:

Beautiful work Andi, I love them  :love:

Here in the US it's possible to get glow in the dark acrylic paint. It's from a line of craft paints. I used it to paint my glow in the dark ghost chicken.

Amazing!!!  :lol: Its a hard work...

I'm working on a similar idea for horse of Lord of the Rings, but as you know I use stickers. I've take a picture of a skeleton from a book and I've made a white sticker (only white, similar like your work). Sticker that I can tranfer fast.  ;)

Just want to say I loved them, I want a set! Not that I know what I'd do with them put they are excellent. Your a great freehand painter. I'm awestruck.

Years later this is still such an excellent execution! While I prefer an actual bony horse, I can still see this as a viable Playmobil model. Hopefully one day....
