The knights tent made out of resin
You can make a rough opening with a small saw.
The cutter knife is better to work more accurate once the rough opening is finished.
After a short time the tent is open. Smooth the visible cuttings with sand paper.
Now I start painting with grounding the model.
I still use black...
Now I paint the tarpaulin with the first color. I used a dark red and a flat brush.
Use the brush vertical, so you can easily paint crinkles when the color doesn't cover the grounding evenly.
You can work out the crinkles while painting wet in wet with a lighter red or you can wait until the dark red has dryed and use the lighter red afterwards. But you should smudge the lighter red to achieve a color gradient.
Now I paint the rest of the tarpaulin with the same method I used with the red colors.
First I paint with ivory or a slightly yellowish white and then with a pure white.
You can also paint the inside if you like. Maybe you like to place a light inside the tent.
Now I paint the top and the ropes.
Finally I cover the whole thing with clear coat (matt) and finished!
We wish you a lot of fun with constructing and painting.
