Scotty - Silver Bay Swaps

Swaps is one of my favorite molds, ever. When I saw the poll last year to vote on colors for the collectors club release I knew I would be joining the club. Must have the Swaps!  If money trees where real I would have all three colors but I received the lovely silver bay. Don't tell the others but he might be my favorite model...

Zahrat

As soon as I saw Breyer's Stablemate Collector Clubs Zahrat I might a squealed... a lot. Bay Arabian with a blaze to boot! So close to my Ace boy, I'm so happy I decided to join the club this year. He arrived safely and in is pretty much in perfect condition. Flawless thick gloss with no bubbles or boogers. He’s on my desk and I can’t stop looking at him…

Busy

I've been very busy, so glad NaMoPaiMo was last month. Going out of state then having people from outer state visiting, I've been running around like a headless chicken. Although I have had a little studio time, still working on my Huck.



And I decided to strip and repaint my Phoenix. I was never happy with the original paint job I did on her and I also wanted to change her face. I have added epoxy to her giving her a less dished profile. Also sanded down her cheeks making them more square. Still more to do so hopefully next week is less crazy.

NaMoPaiMo - Continues

While my NaMoPaiMo pony was drying and I was sitting in my chair I got inspired. So many cool ponies on my Facebook feed and helpful people all around really gives you creative impulse. He will be a portrait of my gelding, still along way to go but it's a start!

NaMoPaiMo - I Did It!

She is done! She came out very differently then planned… some girls are so head strong. I still might go back and add some white markings but I’m calling her done.


Thank you so much everyone involved in NaMoPaiMo for inspiration, help and awesomeness. Not only did I get motivated to paint I also sculpted! Sometimes it really does take a village.

NaMoPaiMo - Continues

So after sanding back the old paint, we talked it over and came to the conclusion that liver chestnut would be alright. It’s a color I’ve never painted so fingers crossed it works out.

NaMoPaiMo - Struggles

She fought me on becoming a creamy buttery Buckskin every step of the way.


 The photo looks half alright but she was way more orange and muddy in person, not the color I wanted. So I tried to get her more golden but it was an epic fail... 


Now she is green and rough. I will be stripping her and start again... maybe try something new. I wonder if she would like to be liver chestnut?
