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.
