Things really slowed down a bit tonight, the back banners and the painting over bits that the contrast paint got too certainly made a difference.
Nonetheless I am part way through another nine warriors. These aren’t going to win any prizes. My aim is speed, but with a bit of skill involved. As an example I haven’t bothered painting the belt. I have left it the same colour as the Tlahuiztli. Loincloths are all the same colour blue to save time…all apart from one, I forgot to repaint the loincloth on the yellow suit so his has turned out green.
I haven’t decided on a colour for the banner poles, I am thinking a neutral brown or cream to let the brighter colours stand out.
Whilst having a mooch in a box I found a bit of my leather carving.
It is half of the Aztec two headed snake I made for my good lad (the other half is on the back). She is deserting me for a week to go to a conference in Blackpool. I hope being a single dad will give me some time to paint the rest of the Aztec elites.
