I dedicate all my free time to painting .... I spread a couple of thin layers of acrylic, in order to identify lights and shadows, but the bulk of the work I do with oils .... I do not clog the details of the engraving .   ;)

Thank you Angelo ! I was impressed by the vivid colours of your paintings, and swa your last few with direct oil painting.


I am on several attempts of acrylic undercoating since six months, with the purpose to reduce the amount of oil of the last layers and accelerate so the drying time.


Is your acrylic coating as accurate as the final oil paint, or more used as surface colouring, sot the tiny small details ? (faces, details, coats of arms, ..)?


Fantastic effect reached anyway in the final painting, with a general zenithal light sourcing …  Congratulations, and you seem to paint quiet fast !!

Hi Hannibal,I paint one side....Usually, I paint undercoat with acrylics, but, sometimes, only with oils.....I see that by painting directly with oil, the colors seem more vivid  ;)

1. Are you painting one side or the two sides?
2. Are you pre-painting with acrylics or directly with oil on your undercoat?

Fear not, it is a fairly common set the comes up frequently. 

I am somewhat fond of it myself as it was the first set of flats I purchased in this wonderful genre from a delightful fellow no longer with us - Carl Gruen - who apparently was the middle man for many folks getting their start in flats.  Nice fellow and interesting set.

Good luck.

Many thanks to all who replied to my request for information on Casanova. Not successful on E-bay. Could not work out  the bidding format in German and got my last bid in too

Cheers
