Peek-a-Boo Peek

Remember that cute little cookie of the foal peeking through mamma's tail? Well, I got him molded and cast the other day and prepped for production molding just now! :D I've really been wanting some little item to stock for fun that was affordable to everyone or that I could give to shows as a donation piece that was readily available. Cookies fit the bill. Besides, who doesn't like cookies? Nom nom.

I'll only be selling this when copies are in stock and of course they'll go through my mailing list first. Link to the list should be on the right hand column there. I'll be asking $20 plus postage. I can tell you all right now that one day hubby will wake up to find lots of Peek-a-Boo magnets on the fridge! :D

Dainty Darcy Sales Piece

So I've been working hard on getting this gal done for my next resin sales piece. I've got two more of her sisters in the works too. This is the "flashiest" paint job of the three - a dark dappled caramel palomino sabino. I love the way she's turning out! Just need to get the eyes/hooves painted and clean up the markings on the right side! $450 + $10 shipping (int'l extra) takes her. I'll have her finished either by tomorrow evening or Friday.

New Sales Piece

So, I've finally completed the moderately customized Weather Girl! She's now up on AB! Click Here for her Auction. Remember AB links can be finicky so just hit the browser's back button if it doesn't work on first click.

And yes, those shoes are "forged" and not sculpted.

Honestly, it was fun to transform a horse into something that was still a Weather Girl, but at the same time completely different. I don't know if I'll suddenly switch from painting resins to completely customizing plastics, but it was a nice change of beat. I have a Valentine here in studio who I've done some slight customizing to. I want to finish her at some point. Maybe next month. Too many commissions I've got on the table to get completed this month to fit her in. :) There's also a Breyer Classic scale Hanoverian and a Stone Trad. Paloose that I have big plans for. I might even have to push Valentine down the line a little to make room for that Paloose. He's going to be something. :D

That's all you'll get from me for now. Back to painting and casting and cleaning and website updating! Oh my.
