List of ponies safe/unsafe to sunfade.
« on: July 12, 2013, 08:33:57 AM »
I would like to make a list of the ponies that are safe to try and sunfade.

I know TE Quackers is inclined to sunburn but I could use your help to make a decent list of ponies. I know sunfading can always go wrong on these ponies but there are some that are in the danger zone to begin with

'Safe' to sunfade:
- Glory
- Yum yum
- IT Gusty
- Chief!
- Lemondrop,
- Baby Surprise
- baby sister Apple Delight
- Glory
- Sundance
- Bouquet
- Speed
- NBBE Cuddles

Sunburn prone:
- TE Quackers
- Starshine
- Confetti
- UK Gusty
- Chief
- Gingerbread
- Cherry treats
- Whitecap (the two white adult sea ponies)
- Night Glider (strong Australian sun = orange marks)
- Teeny tiny baby honey (strong Australian sun = orange marks)
- Star catcher (faded to the famous Australian green variant)
- Bonnie Bonnets (strong Australian sun = orange marks)
- Mimic
- Bright Eyes
- Windy
- Fireball

Will fade their colour drastically:
- Italian pink ponies like Parasol / Firefly / Twilight (don't think posey is the same kind of pink, never saw one fade)
- Italian Skyflier
- Mexican ponies
Feel free to add to the list. Or if this topic has been done before, kindly point me to it and remove this one :)


This would need to be a very flexible list. For example Party has sun faded Chief with no issues, I turned a Chief a charming shade of tan when I tried to do it. Technically ANY pony can either burn or fade due to either the condition of their plastic or how long they are exposed to it. If a pony is more prone to age marks and cancer they will be more prone to burning, if a pony is more prone to a head/body mismatch they will be more prone to fading.

But all that being said there are plenty of exceptions to the rule on either side.

I turned my Confetti into one crispy critter by trying to sunfade her. :cloud:

I've sunfaded multiple TAF Yum Yums' with much success.  Just be SUPER CAREFUL that you cover every single tiny bit of her hair or it will turn white FAST!!! :shocked:

I have sunfaded an Italian Gusty and it worked great, no sunburning or other issues.

Not Chief - he could burn, as will Gingerbread and Cherry Treats.

Technically ANY pony can either burn or fade due to either the condition of their plastic or how long they are exposed to it.

I've been carefully fading a very stained Gingerbread.  No signs of burning but it hasn't lightened her up a lot either.  Her pink hair was already white (although I kept it covered). I live in Oklahoma so our sun is pretty strong, but I checked on her everyday as I had heard she can burn, also.

I think she's the same hard plastic as Quackers. Might have to try that acné cream on my Quackers as i'm scared I'll burn her.
