After the base coat has dried a layer of the darkest
coat color is placed on the body.

There are many ways to approach this coat pattern on a horse when painting. This technique is just one of many a painter can use. Each picture contains a description. Hope the visuals help those that might be struggling with dappling.

By the way, I am using mixed media on this "Dante" resin. The base color is primarily pastels and pigments and the dappling color is oils.

Using a "wipe out" tool primarily used in ceramics
Slowly wipe out little circles along the barrel.

Continue and follow the natural hairing pattern.

Finish the barrel and then let dry for 24-48 hours.
Do the same on the other side.
