Instruction to open and to paint the knights tent.




Used tools
  • Cutter knife
  • Saw
  • Sand paper
  • Acrylpaint
  • Brushes
  • Clear coat (matt)



The knights tent made out of resin



Step 1
You can make a rough opening with a small saw.




Step 2
The cutter knife is better to work more accurate once the rough opening is finished.




Step 3
After a short time the tent is open. Smooth the visible cuttings with sand paper.

 


Step 4
Now I start painting with grounding the model.
I still use black...




Step 5
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.

 


Step 6
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.




Step 7
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.

 


Step 8
You can also paint the inside if you like. Maybe you like to place a light inside the tent.




Step 9
Now I paint the top and the ropes.

 


Step 10
Finally I cover the whole thing with clear coat (matt) and finished!






We wish you a lot of fun with constructing and painting.
