    Do any of you do artistic painting?

    I bought a bouncy horse (used) that I want to repaint to match my real horse. I could use any advice on the best way to do this!

    What a cute idea! Can you use a background color that's a brown and then stipple a white or whitish color over it with a drier stipple brush?

    I don't do much painting, so I'm sure you'll get more and better advice later. [​IMG]

    I haven't painted any horses yet but I have several books on painting animals so I am going by what I think the books would say lol
    Base in the lightest reddish brown color, then shade in the darker reddish brown areas. You could do more than 2 shades if you need to, but start with the lightest. Then stipple on a light grey, make sure the stippling is different size dots.


    You have a beautiful horse! Thats one of my fave horse colors.
