That's so cool!  I've seen doll heads grown and shrunk; there's tutorials for fast and slow shrinking.  It makes monster high dolls look so much better proportioned when their heads are shrunk.

More sizes of ponies can make for more interesting families.  The enlarged ones looking male & shrunk ones being teens or petite ladies. 

Would love to see a bigger big brother.

Oh wow! So amazing that you got two totally different outcomes from the two ponies in the same bath - how fun is this?!

First off, let's take a moment of silence for Lickety Split... RIP
She started out so well, but wasn't meant to last... The expanding foam wasn't nearly strong enough to keep her from shrinking. She became smaller than her original size, and the expanding foam at her core apparently didn't have the air to dry, so it eventually spilled out. It was a real mess.

Lickety's revenge: expanding foam on my fingernails... That stuff does not come off!

I'm afraid G1 is over and done with, for now. Those figures are just to unpredictable. Here's a newborn that was left in acetone:

She grew a bit, but nothing worthwhile. Notice the cheek; the plastic has been eaten away, like acne scars.

So for my final attempt, I went with a G3.

(If someone could take a comparison shot of a regular Wondermint next to a classic coke can, that would be great.)


G3 truly seems worth the effort! For now. Fingers crossed. I think the G1 plastic is just too old to withstand the acetone shock. Also, a G3's plastic seems more even throughout the body, contrary to G1's who have obvious spots of very thin plastic.

We'll see what happens to Wondermint in a few days. But if this works, I might have to stick with G3 instead of G1 for my supersized art pony project. If Wondermint survives, I'll be going all out and drown a G3 Styling pony in acetone...

EDIT: Her paint came off really quickly, but the strands of hair are not affected at all. Weird.

Just when I thought I was done with G1's, this happened... I'm considering this to be twice the size, maybe not in height but in volume it comes close enough. She's massive, and needs support to stand. The very first one shrunk back btw.

Random Peachy dropped in the acetone after Wondermint's result:

Wow, she is massive! The results are very varied though. How is First Peachy now that she has shrunk back? Is her plastic any different to that of other Peachies'?

I just want to see some fashion styles grow to life size ponies :P

That is awesome though, I hope they stay that big! You can really tell how much lighter bigger Peachy is.

Oh it’s a shame the foam didn’t work and gave you lovely new nail art!! Peachy looks a LOT bigger than the original. I hope she stays that way!

First Peachy's plastic became much harder. She was about half n ear shorter than the regular peachy I used for the comparison shots. The second one shrunk back as well, sadly enough. I used moist flour to fill them with this time, taped off the neckline and the tail hole. It's just not strong enough; the shrinking plastic manages to push the filling out.

The same was used on Wondermint; she holds up just fine.

Playdoh as a filling might be another option?

I have a baby Moondancer as well. This time I won't try to stop the shrinking and just let the whole process be. Let's see how small she gets in the end.
