American Paint Wild Horses, Saddle, Tumbleweed

WILD HORSES – a dark umber brown  Like color – CeCe Virginia Chestnut

The APC paint brushes out quite nice.  My brush strokes are longer and leaner,  less paint on my surface  but still covering  as I go.    I still like to do a quick second coat wash (adding some water) and a light sanding, but I’m finding there is a little less sanding with the APC paint, maybe because it brushes out leaner-

SADDLE -medium brown.

Different light –

SADDLE – top left Topcoat Finish, top right Clear Antiquing Wax, botttom left Light Antiquing Wax bottom right Dark Antiquing Wax. The tinted waxes are subtle and show up more on the lighter paint colors.

The paint finish can be light sanded with a 180-220 grit paper to quickly refine the finish (knocks down any brush strokes, etc).  You can also take a damp rag and rub your edges to reveal your undercolor.  Do all this fiddling BEFORE you seal the paint…
