Wild Horses With SK

SK on Elderberry
by SK on Elderberry
A thirty year old spring horse was my latest challenge. My client didn't want him to look original. She gave me free reign to create a one-of-a-kind piece.
After this pretty pony was sanded and bonding primed,
it was time to add a few details in sculpturing.
With the help of Modern Masters Metal Effects Paint I was able to rust his mane, tail and hooves. His saddle is patine d copper. The blanket is a deep warm Burgundy red.
The body is painted a deep chocolate and then glazed with a crackle medium. After these coats are dry,
I painted him in an antique cream and after the crackle has cured, I glazed him with a deep chocolate glaze and varnish.

Thanks for visiting. sk
