Royal Order of Water Buffaloes

Here’s a shot of the finished edition of 21 plaques. There’s something satisfying about all the repetition, both visually and in terms of the process. Working in multiples forces me to refine my techniques into easily duplicated steps. It’s a puzzle of sorts, where the outcome is both predictable and surprising.

 

Finally starting to paint the beast

I’m going to paint the Skullfish a soft sparkly white/ grey. The paint gets applied in several layers. I’ll start with a flat black primer, followed by a base coat of black urethane paint. I’ll go back in with white to create a range of tones. The rainbow pearlescent goes on top of that, followed by a clear coat. Each layer of paint gets applied by airbrush in several passes.
