I started some very diluted black which was gently brushed on to the centre of the belt to add a touch of depth. Once the black had dried I very carefully stippled the top and bottom edges of the belt with beige.
The paint was diluted around 4:1 with water. To finish it all off a wash of cavalry brown was added bringing the separate elements together and give the whole belt a leather sheen.
Hope you like the progress.
The next job is to do a bit of work on the red crosses and get them looking less painted.
