Celtic shield Carew, 3rd - 2nd cen B.C.
This Celtic shield can be painted individually. With an individually painted shield you will gain visibility and importance on the battlefield. Particularly suitable are water-soluble colors because these colors seep into the rawhide and do not peel off. Alcohol-stain can be used for larger areas, after which the leather texture remains visible. For lines, symbols or other details you can use any water-based paint, acrylic is also acceptable. You can hardly make any technological mistake. Important is to apply the color in thin layers, otherwise the painting can peel off later. Before you start painting, rub the rawhide carefully so that it is dry and grease-free. Grease residues from previous processing may be left on the rawhide.More information
