Hello :wave:

I am not really into adult seaponies so I don’t have an idea of how much they are worth right now.
Could anybody tell me what price Italian Seaspray with her shell (suction cup missing) and brush and comb would be fair?

Thank you :)

Also, do you keep the tail weight? Or do you take it out and replace it? With what? It’s my first time cleaning an adult seapony so any advice would be awesome :)

I usually open them up, clean them on the inside. I keep the weight and put on a clear coat of clear nailpolish. That way the weight stays the same but the risk of rust is gone. Then I put the weight back in.

This sight might be helpful to. Good luck :)

Oh that’s a great site, thank you so much!

Also the idea with the nail polish is a good one! Never thought of that :)
I already opened her and the weight looks pretty good, not really rusted. But she had a lot of nasty black stuff inside so I am not sure if it was from the weight or if it was something else  :lol: On the outside she looks great!

It’s definitely not mold, it smelled like nothing  :lol: Maybe just dirt because it came off really quickly and it didn’t affect the plastic in any way.
Maybe it’s better not to think about what it could be :blink:  :lol:

Basic toothpaste is also awesome for getting rid of rust on those weights in sea ponies (like it works for tail rust on normal ponies), but I'm glad your pony wasn't all rusty - most are pretty bad!! :hug:   I would definitely recommend oxyclean/Vanish oxyaction or similar to make sure there are no nasties growing in there as well. The nail polish is new to me, but sounds like a good idea :bigups:  if the weight is really bad you can try and sand off the rust after cleaning, or if it's beyond salvaging then using a marble like it suggested on the restoration site is also a good idea.
Ooh the sea pony shown on that site with the bad rust, the nasty weight inside and then the after pic - those pictures are mine, and I'm credited on there for them :heart: heehee I forgot about that!! she was a good example of how a reeeally bad condition sea pony can still clean up nice  ^.^  :lovey:
