Doug got me inspired so I went out to try my hand at some simple light painting. First off, it's not as easy as it looks and second, it's not good to already have some light in the scene as it gets blown. I was only able to paint for a few seconds due to the existing light which is why I only got his head...

Here's the scene at night. You can see the rider and horse are completely black. Flash would not have worked here because of the reflective material:

Hi Chris,

It's eigth inch sheet metal painted with I don't know what kind of paint, only that it is very vibrant and fairly weather resistant. I didn't see any signs of fading or rust so it's either new or they used good materials.
