Stage 1:

Undercoated in white. I'm currently using Plasti-Kote Projekt Paint - Primer Super.

Horses undercoated in white

Stage 2:

I painted the body all over using Winsor & Newton acrylic Titanium White. I don't do the mane and tail at this stage. The Titanium White is a fairly thick paint, so I've thinned it a bit, but not too much. I want this to be a good solid coat of white.

Note: This demo is for horses that are going to end up mostly white with some coloured patches. If you want your horse to be mostly coloured with some white patches, then swap stages two and three around for stages seven and eight.

Stage 3:

When the basecoat of white is dry, Winsor & Newton Unbleached Titanium gets slapped on all the recesses, and on areas that help in defining the major muscles, plus along the edge of the mane and root of the tail. I use enough water to get the paint fairly runny, but not so thin it goes on as a wash.
