Step 14: How To Paint A Shirt Collar

Use the same gold tone as the hat’s insignia for the collar’s details, this time filling the whole insignia without leaving any highlights as the entire collar is in shadow. Paint the buttons and medals too, but you can avoid the highlights with them. Wait for the collar’s details to dry, then block in the main color of the collar using Peacock and Cerulean Blue, making sure to avoid the details on the collar. Use the same color for the epaulettes (the badges on the shoulders of a uniform) too, while avoiding highlights. Leave the paint to dry.
