    Default Good leather colour with Vallejo Model Colours ?

    Hi all,

    I\'m trying to find a good combination of VMC colours to achieve a realistic leather for boots, straps, quivers etc.

    What are some good combinations that people out there have found successful ?

    I have recently been playing with VMC smoke after a basecoat of cork brown and I think I gives a good effect. Keep the smoke thin so that you can darken the cork as you need. Highlight with cork brown and white mix.

    Hope this helps,

    Vallejo has a leather but it tends to the green side of things but with the smoke mentioned above the combo seems to work, also,they have a red leather that is cool bit harder to work with tends to pull off if not dry, but the smoke to follow is also a great look, really smoke is the bomb for me it works in so many ways. I hope that helps though I am not that good, I do like the leather stuff.
    EDIT Welcome to the forums you will find many to help you here, and some to just amuse.

    saddle brown is good
    Cavalry brown is good for a redish leather.
    Check out the \"horse colors\" set for good brown selections.
