:new:EDIT: Not for Sale. Sorry. However, if I ever get more models like her, I will make sure to paint a few with these colours, for those who are interested.

Perhaps my absolute favorite model I have painted to date, this is a repainted Breyer Nokota model-- formerly the Isadora Cruce model in particular lol.

I painted this girl after christmas, with hopes of perhaps painting her into a silver bay roan (I realized I would kill myself on the roaning, so settled for a flaxen chestnut sabino). I got a set of interference paints for christmas, as well as some silver and pearl mixing paints, so I mixed up a new batch of airbrush acrylics with my interference paints, hoping that once it was painted on, it would give her a sheen similar to what you see in real horses (like my QH Jigs, he's a sorrel who when clean, shines all sorts of different shades or brown and gold). I then painted all the white markings with a mix of white, yellow and pearl, though you can't really see the sheen in these photos-- I painted the mane and tail strand by strand, so in the right light, it looks like she has individual hairs glistening lol.

I am still trying to come up with a name for her-- I just absolutely love how she turned out.

I have a feeling she will be quite expensive.. xD

Oh dear-- I didn't put her in the wrong category did I? Unfortunately, she is not for sale. At this time, the only one I have for sale is the sooty grullo with the gulastra plume. ^_^'

However, if I ever find another model like her, I am sure I could make another just like her, if you are that interested.

You certainly did a fantastic job on repainting that model. She is an utter stunner. :heart:
That sheen to the coat really gives a more life-like feel.

I was wondering whether you could give me some advice on interference paint. I'm currently making a sculpture of one of my characters (Torius) and once he has been baked, was considering using an interference paint on him. Now, I have no experience with this paint whatsoever, and I was also wanting to airbrush it onto him. Do you have any tips on how I could do this or how the paint works? :)

Basically, for the paint I ended up hand-mixing everything. I took the base colour of acrylic I wanted, and using the proportions of acrylic to water (you can find them on google) I mixed it up. Then I added more interference paint, and mixed it in-- if you take a sheet of white paper, and use something like a tooth-pick, and dip it in, then transfer the paint on it to the paper, and let it dry, you can see the general sheen the paint will have when dry in 'samples'. Once I get it to the sheen I like, I add more water to thin it out again (cause sometimes it can take a lot of paint to get the sheen noticeable enough) till its air-brush paint consistency again (in general, the consistency of milk).
You can also just put it on straight from the tube, over the layer of paint (I'm guessing you'll be using blue, cause Torius is a blue) however it might end up being too vibrant (at least, it was for my natural colours).

If you make several different colours of acrylic airbrush paint, you can also change the hue and shade of your base-paint so everything blends nicely-- it makes for a nice gradation, especially when doing points and countershading.

How about Isabella Cruce? I believe that Isabella is Spanish for gold... I think.. Bell for short. :D She is beautiful - this is my favorite of the Breyer mustang molds.

Hehe maybe.
The mold is definately one of my favorites, the detail in it is fantastic!
