Coriander Cumin - G4-themed Custom
« on: April 15, 2019, 04:00:57 PM »
So if any of you remember last year's Cattail custom I did (his thread can be found here), I acquired another G1 baby fakie and decided to continue the theme with Coriander Cumin, who I just finished today! These lovely small stallions make me so happy <3

This guy marks my first attempt at sculpting new parts. Because Coriander Cumin is a unicorn, I needed to make a horn for him. I'm also currently saving for the pony meet I'm going to at the end of this month so I didn't want to spend money on additional supplies. The only clay I had on hand was Sculpy. So, I sculpted his horn out of Sculpy, baked it, cut a hole in the bait's forehead, and hot glued it into the hole. It worked out pretty well!

I then hand-painted him with acrylics, and detailed him with a bit of shading and his wrinkles. His symbol was quite the challenge to get symmetrical on both sides, but I'm super proud of how it came out.

His 'hair' is a lovely mixed yarn that I've had wasting away in my craft cupboard for years. I know Coriander Cumin's hair is solid brown, but I think this mixed color yarn accents his colors beautifully! I hot glued wefts of it to his head and neck to create his mane, and then used thread to put it in a permanent bun style. I hot glued little tufts of it to his nose and eyebrows. For his tail, I put several yarn strands together, and then put a dab of hot glue on one end to make it easier for it to go through the tail hole. I then put it through the hole and hot glued it on the inside to get it to stay in. Then I twisted it into a bun and used the thread method and a bit more hot glue to get it to stay.

Overall, I'm very pleased with how this guy came out. I still need to make his shirt and track down my gloss varnish so I can give his details a shine, but otherwise he's finished!

Ahaha this is great, I haven't seen the episode yet so at first I didn't realise this was based on a real G4 character. I think the yarn you picked for his hair is great, it does give a nice highlight effect!

Hehe thank you! Yup, I have a major love for FiM background ponies so this guy stuck out in my mind and I couldn't resist making a custom of him <3 I'm glad you also like the yarn hair as well!
