Its been hot and muggy today. The heat isn't unusual but the humidity is. Its up to 55% today, pretty darn humid for a high altitude, dry climate like ours. I was up early applying primer to the Danish Cavalry units this morning. I opted not to use the Tamiya Nato Brown and just went with the Army Painter Leather Brown Primer, along with the Tamiya Camel Yellow and Dull Red. I know those sound like weird choices but they certainly seem to work when you check out the tutorial that olddorg posted his Metal Mountain blog: painting-horses
I deliberately didn't bring my oil paints with me this weekend so that I would make sure the primer had plenty of time to cure. Hopefully I will be more successful with the oil wipe tomorrow night.
Here is all the cavalry primed and ready to go.
Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)
