Well, I finally got around to the elves. Not my favourite figures, and a lot of horses- but at least there's no bridles or reins! Recall my first attempt:
|The mud monster!|
That scared me away from the elves for a while. So now I went back with a lighter dip and less of it. I should say that all my trial dips have been darker because I'm not spreading the dip across several figures. I went for Unbleached Cloth and Battledress Brown for the horse. Other colours included Silver, GI Green, RAF Blue, Confederate Grey, and Afrika Brown for the skin. Walnut dip.
|Ahh, that's better|
