Can anyone suggest a colour to use for natural leather. Paticularly British and French SYW. As most of my painting guides just give the above description for belts etc. Vallejo please. Thanks in advance
Belts as issued would have been natural buff leather, how long they would remain so in the field…
Have a read of this
FWIW, I use Vallejo av874 USA Tan over white primer.
"I'm not signing that"
I use Miniature masters coffee colour with a brown wash over it. Then if you want it lighter add white
Very similar to buff.
I have used Miniature master leather with white added, it works as well.
What scale figures the smaller the figure the lighter the colour is my normal rule.
