Painting

We were supposed to have a blizzard today.  In fact, the forecast was so dire the school district went ahead and declared the snow day before a single flake had fallen.
As it turns out, they should have waited.  We ended up getting maybe two inches.  Maybe.
Oh well.  It's been a nice, quiet, lazy day at home with the kids and dogs.
I've even managed to get a few things accomplished.
Little miss Double Stuff (what else would you name Oreo's filly?) is coming along nicely. 
Her base color is complete and her markings are getting there.
I'm beginning to think I might actually finish her, especially if there's more snow in the forecast!

    1. I agree! I am still a beginner at customizing. I am still a bit nervous to paint a breyer... Not sure how it's gonna turn out. I WANT to paint one, but I don't know if I want to possiblt ruin one of my models. I may have to find a resin or body to paint.

    I'm sure it's not but you sure are making the painting part of this hobby 'stuff' look easy. I can't wait to try it!!

    1. I was about to ask the same thing! How hard is airbrushing? I want to try it. XD

    2. She's painted with pastels (base color) and hand-painted acrylics (white markings). I have only handled an airbrush once or twice in my life, and the results weren't pretty! Don't know if this is typical for everyone, but I really struggled to get a feel for the airbrush. It's not intuitive at all--at least not for me!

      (I would like to try again, though.)
