Glad you're back, TickledPink/ImmortalPanda!

I abandoned the Sonic pony for now, and I'm making a Shire/LOTR pony instead! She will have a 3D sculpted and flocked symbol on both sides--a Hobbit hole--and pretty yellow butterfly wings. Base pony-Wind Drifter (she will keep her mane/tail and body color, just her symbol and wings will change). She will also have a raised set of leaves on her forehead, like the leaf brooch
(I couldn't find one that small, she is a tiny pony, fitting for a Hobbit pony). She also has a little Hobbit hole from an aquarium as her accessory.

Was considering giving her some dark green highlights in her mane/tail too, or maybe silver tinsel, if the supplier doesn't run out again :p

Sounds great, ChocolateStarfire! Can't wait to see your Hobbit pony  ^.^

I haven't touched my WIP in ages.  :huh:  I've only made one custom this year. Trying to get back on track and offered a commission slot as one of the Halloween colouring contest prizes, maybe trying someone else's idea for a change will get me going! ;)

Thank you Griffin! Yeah I find that others' ideas inspire me to create vs my own stuff sometimes, I completely understand :3

I'm finally doing something :cheer: I need to make a base for this custom and then I'll be sculpting many, many seashells. I also need to find my craft sand... I think I know where it is.

That's a bummer!!!

Anyway, keeping it simple to start:
visitors can't see pics , please register or login

Duck Pony, or Canardine, is a baby unicorn to go with Dutch Rabbit Pony. I dyed a baity yellowed Baby Moondancer green, rooted her with a pale purple, & gave her a duck symbol in colours which turn out to perfectly match Sea Star's float!!!
Getting to work painting a third pumpkin treat bucket, while I dyed the Apoxie Sculpt hoof feathers orange to match the body of the Pony I put them on. Tomorrow I'm dyeing some GITD hair, & giving it a thorough rinse & a good while before it goes in the Pony (because last time I dyed hair green the dye transferred to the Pony & it wasn't nice...)

And that's how we know you're a Customiser!!! Stinky chemicals, scarred hands, & so much stains on stuff, despite trying to protect your surfaces. Oh, the joys!!! Hope you cleaned & wrapped the cut up!!! A good first aid kit is as essential as acetone

I find when I'm trying to be careful because of a new blade is exactly when I cut myself the most :P

I’ve got a headless Surprise because I’ve used the head for my custom alternative pose Princess Tiffany. Seeing as it’s going to be Halloween I’m planning on turning the body into the headless horseman.

I’ve re haired another Salty with his TV counterpart hair (even though the pink is darker than his TV counterpart) because my old one well his head keeps falling off and I can’t find him.

Got bait Northstar, Speckles, and Rattles from Etsy coming so Northstar & Speckles are going to be a custom Moondream, and Baby Moondream. As for Rattles I’m going to re hair her.

Yesterday I cut my middle finger with scissors while I was cutting the things from the tail. And my index finger is sore because of re rooting pony heads.

I have my brother remove the pony heads for me because I cut myself with the exacto knife.

A mother pony can be protective of her young just like dogs.

Why is it so hard to get certain paints the correct consistency to actually APPLY??? I swear, that's the one thing I HATE about my current glow in the dark paint. When I mix it with the others it goes all goopy. I just want it paintable...

Was a pain to get sorted this time, & needed too, I mean it was for a spider web!!! Trying to do it for yesterday's pumpkin bucket was 90% fail, so had a go with other methods to smooth the web paint out. Too late for the edge but the inner lines are better (still me though so still not perfect lol)

GITD paint is heavier than most other acrylics, I find. It's also more prone to separate when mixed with water. I use latex glow paint. I get good results with it, plus the glow is more intense and comes in a variety of colors. The only thing, being latex it leaves a rubbery feel after it dries and if you pick at it, it can peel off. But for customs that just sit on a shelf, that's not a problem.

Can't wait to see your customs, PBW!
