Happy New Year!

A little very late, but I wish you all a very happy new year with lots of joy (and hopefully lots of model horses). During the holidays I mostly relaxed and ate food (hello, extra kilos), but I also worked on some models. Here are some pictures of the progress.

This girl is the custom PAM I started a few weeks ago. She is no longer earless and bald! She obviously still needs a tail and lots of prepping, but she’s getting there!


I love the sweet expression of the PAM model, it’s really one of Maureen Love’s best sculptures in my opinion. To make her performance friendly, I made a slightly lifted forelock, and a bridle path.


At the same time, I am also planning the colours of her own costume. She will likely have a blue/red/cream costume. No idea when I’ll have time to actually put the costume together though…


And then there is this beautiful Branston resin that I customized to look like the horse I used to ride. She’s coming along really nicely so far!


And lastly there is this Wee Wyakin resin that has been in my body box for faaaar too long. I got her as a body that needed stripping, which took me a long time. After that I lost interest for a while because I had already put so much work into just getting her cleaned up. But then I decided to paint her in the holidays because she IS a very pretty resin. She’s now a dapple smutty buckskin. I still need to work on her hooves a little more, and gloss her eyes. After that she will be pretty much done.


So, that’s what I have been up to the last few weeks. I will start making Arab tack again soon though! Don’t worry 😉


Live show rescue horse

I didn’t leave the Akmar Tribute show empty handed… 

This guy was sitting on the sales table for a while, when my boyfriend (who accompanied my to the show) spotted him. He knows I love a good project and a challenge, so he picked the horse up and gave it to me. I gladly took him home and stripped him of any remaining paint. I was planning to do a simple custom on him, but then this happened…

He is now ‘loping’ (a slow canter). He has a long way to go, but we’re getting there. Eventually I will resculpt most of his head, mane, tail, hindquarters and his left elbow/shoulder. The inspiration for this custom came from this real horse:

I also decided to let my boyfriend name him. This horse shall now be known as Diesel Black Gold, or just Diesel. If he turns out well I might just have to get a nice tack set for him for future shows…
