How to Repaint Breyer Horse Toys

Breyer model horse toys can do something that real horses cannot do, change colors! Not only does your horse get an extreme make-over but you can have a lot of fun in the process. Here are some tips on the materials you will need and how to do it.

1. Paints – Acrylic paints are highly recommended because they are water-based rather than oil-based, so they dry much faster. You can buy tubes of acrylic paint at most art supply stores. In addition to the colors you want for your horse, you will also need to get black and white, which is used for highlights and smaller accents 건마.

2. Brushes – You will need a lot of brushes in different sizes for painting different areas. To get started, get as many as you can afford to get in the 0-5 range of Sable Brushes. You will need some that can be dedicated to certain colors while others can be used for blending colors.

3. Foam Rubber – You will need foam rubber or something like it for blending colors. Some people use cosmetic sponges while others make due with just using their fingertips.

4. Gesso or Auto Primer – Gesso or auto primer is needed to spray on or rub on prior to
painting. This chalky substance helps the paint to adhere to the horse better. Gesso is necessary if you are painting an unpainted model made of resin. Other types of models can get by without this step. You can find it in your hobby supply store in black, white and grey colors.

5. Matte Sealer – Just like ordering your pictures from a developer you have to choose whether you want a matte finish or a gloss finish. After you have painted your horse and allowed the paint to dry, you will need to spray it with matte sealer. If you prefer a glossy look, you can choose gloss sealer but most people prefer the matte finish.
