There are many techniques to dappling. I have found this "wet on wet" technique in oils to be successful and enjoyable. This "Affinity" resin called for some slight dappling along the barrel and hind quarters and after mixing up a lighter version of the base coat I set in to lay dapples in a fashion that would naturally follow the haring pattern of the horse.
I've documented the process, but it's very difficult to see the actual dapples in some pictures just because of the glare of the linseed oil. Please note that drying times for this technique do take several days. This is just the first step in many that are required in creating dapples on a solid colored horse.
