I handled this model quite a bit differently than most. I painted it as I was painting other models, adding to it as I used colors I found appropriate for the pony & cart.
This would not be a terribly fun way to paint a model I’m particularly excited about. It’s very slow-going. But it’s a GREAT way to paint a model I don’t otherwise care all that much about painting! I get to use up extra paint on my palette while making progress on a model I might not otherwise paint.
