"A Cruel Misfortune" Part 11

Here's a couple pics of the finished piece. I'm pretty satisfied with how it turned out. The pictures on the other hand leave much to be desired. I'll post more later.

Thanks for following this project.

AWESOME piece Jason. I really like the job you did on the horse furniture. What's your favorite part? ~Gary

Jason said...

Thanks Gary. I enjoyed doing the whole piece but painting the cuirass with Andrea's silver paint and ink set was pretty fun. You can't tell from any of the pics but the results were pleasing. Now I want paint a knight!...Well, maybe not.

Jason, Can you polish the ANDREA matallics? I know GUNZE SANGYO (sp?) made matallics you could buff/polish and they really looked like metal afterwards.~Gary

Jason said...

No, there's no buffing. The inks are applied to the shadow areas and(blue, brown and black) give the surface a muted tone but retains a sheen. That make sense?
I guess this theory is that the "buffing" types of paint looks artificial when polished and still needs to be shaded. So, adding inks to metalics defeats the need to burnish/buff then shade. Donno.
I'm impressed with them. I'd like to try it on a larger area sometime.

Naturally with the GUNZE it looked better to use various colored washes to accentuate shadows and wear and tear on the metal parts. There are lots of English Civil War subjects that have a fair amount of armor. ~Gary

Jason this is excellent. I have really enjoyed watching it go together.

Gary, I have a few Osprey ECW titles to get the blood pumping. The movie "Cromwell" is inspiring too.
Thanks Ross. Much appreciated.
