Indian Silver Tutorial (Cont.)

Third layer on the Indian Silver.
Applied just like the first two...slowly.

After the Indian Silver had a full day to dry we revisit him and apply one more oil layer. This layer is applied the exact same way as the previous layers. The color used is just slightly darker than what was already placed on the piece. It is blended in using the silk sponge. After the horse is layered it is allowed to dry once again for a full day.

Certain areas that will naturally
be darker can be pushed a bit at this stage

Oil painted quickly added
to the top line. It doesn't have to be neat before blending.

Chestnut is the *HARDEST* color (IMO) to
photograph but you can see how
the color has changed already with the glazing.
