Wednesday my youngest came down with a bug, and I spent two days nursing her back to health. Today I was able to return to my project.
This morning I painted haversacks, cartridge boxes, percussion cap pouches, and belts black. I also painted the muskets all black. This afternoon I painted the musket stocks brown, and I hit the drums and bugles with brown while I was at it. Tonight I painted all the metal fittings with steel color.
I won't be painting at all this weekend. Day four will have to be Monday!
