Thanks, both of you! There are so many more scruffy ponies here to be cleaned up. I really wanted to get them all sorted before we moved so that they could go straight on my new shelves, but I don't think it's going to be done in time now. I can only wash a few each day or the eczema I get on the backs of my hands flares up. Angry

Mind you, I think my ponies do well out of that - they're ending up using better quality shampoo and conditioner than me, since I always have to get the mild ones that are sensitive on my hands. Poke Tounge

I didn't have to take her head off or anything, just some scrubbing, cleaning, conditioning, and running hair through an iron:

How did you fix the rusty glass eyes, that's amazing! Did you remove the eyes and sand off the rust? If so, how did you re-attach the eyes?

Me three; I was just about to say the exact same thing! Poke Tounge

Absolutely fantastic job on her Katti, holy cow!! XD XD XD

As for my own restorations, I really haven't had to do that many.
I've only had to clean and restore the hair on about 3 ponies.
Nothing too major... lol.

I haven't gotten around to taking the after pics of 2 of those 3 ponies yet buuut...
For pics that I can readily locate, here's Teeny Tiny Twin Baby Tootsie.

I found her in a thrift store.

I%20took%20her%20home,%20gave%20her%20a%20nice%20wipe%20down%20with%20some%20acetone...%20 ...a%20few%20strokes%20with%20a%20Mr.%20Clean%20magic%20eraser...%20 ...straightened%20her%20hair%20and%20then... WHOA!%20:D I%20barely%20recognized%20her.%20:lol:

Looking at these pics, I know that she doesn't really look that bad in her before pics, but trust me, she was in way worse condition before I took those pics. She had an old nasty hair band tangled in her knotted tail, her mane was in braids (horrible braids mind you x3), and she had waaaay more dirt on her. I wiped her off with baby wipes before I thought to take her pic... lol.

Ah well... so that's my pointless story! Poke Tounge roflmao

Shutting up now. Mr. Green

She had nail polish, glittery glue, pink highlighter (a LOT), pen, black permanent marker, orange something, some red lipstick and something sticky but nearly colorless... I just couldnīt identify them all. She cleaned up completely in about two weeks. Then I just had to reroot her, cause she looked so sad with that terrible messed up "hair" she had.

Katti, did you sunfade her and scrub with acetone? (the pink highlighter.... came off in two weeks? Geez O_o )
