Due to the toxic chemicals in White Spirits, we chose to work outside. We first put a mix of 4 parts burnt umber oil paint to 1 part black oil paint onto a palette. We then add white spirits straight to the mixing palette to thin it slightly. Then we dot various spots on the tile with the oil mixture and flood it with pure white spirits. Where we want to thicken the shading we add additional thinned oil paint and keep adding pure white spirits with a detail brush to make it look realistic. Where we want to remove oil paint we add white spirits and tease it away.
We have washed a total of 4 tiles completely, but we have done the wash over the Karak stone on all tiles so we can start looking to the next stage.
Next stage will be Karak stone drybrush / sponging and possibly some Ushbati bone.
