Hey thanks for the recommendation on the tinsel, much appreciated!

Yeah I dunno about Dropbox, only recently started using it for my nature photography whilst on holiday.

Oh WOW! This looks absolutely gorgeous!!! Everything about this is so stunning - the linework, the pose, the coloring, the tiara, the hair, the eyes! Do you post your art on dA, IG, and/or Tumblr? I'd love to follow you! Also, might I suggest Sweet Stuff or Galaxy?

I do have an art instagram but I don't post any pony art sadly there. And I love Sweet Stuff and Galaxy! I'll give them a try tomorrow!

I love your style-- sweet and cartoony. Majesty looks magical, and Spike's face really makes me smile.

Thank you so much! Spike was fun to do! It was the first time I tried doodling him :)

Ah thank you! I think I will try some acetone next time I face an issue like this.

Just in case anyone comes by this thread looking for similar info, I found a video of someone replacing the wings on a pony that’s very helpful. She definitely used acetone on the stubborn neck glue, but also to help remove the wing holding back insert.

What a lovely bunch of ponies! Shady has such lovely waves especially. :lovey:

I've heard of some folks using acetone to weaken the glue on the neck seams. :) I always opt to just carefully slice until it comes out, but that might be a better option!

Can't speak on the wing mechanism!

Pony Corral / stubborn head glue and summer wing replacement tips?
« Last post by Purpleglasses on Yesterday at 09:29:08 PM »
Hello all!

I recently got a very cute Lady Flutter who needed new wings. She had intact neck glue and I wanted to take her head off to follow Shadowonthemoon’s rewinging tutorial. When I dunked her in boiling water, the back edge of her neck seam popped, but I had a really hard time taking it further than that without getting in their with an exacto knife. She isn’t damaged or sliced up, (I’ve seen some not great things happen when removing pony heads, and it’s not THAT awful) but her neck seam didn’t make a super clean seperation and there’s some jaggedness there. I don’t love it but it was my first time dealing with this issue, so please be kind. I know there are lots of people these days who don’t even want to buy a pony whose head is loose, so I felt kind of bad taking her apart on that front too, though she definitely needs those new wings!

I’d prefer to avoid using a blade next time I try this. What should I do if the neck glue is just stubborn? Is it best to just dangle the pony in a pot of consistently boiling/simmering water, pulling her out from time to time and gently tugging on her head? I’ve heard of people wrapping the pony in a  heating pad for a while, is that better?

While trying to remove the head I noticed the central piece of plastic that holds the wings in place seemed to be coming a bit loose too. To change out wings, is it 100% necessary to remove the head and fiddle with the pony’s internal mechanism, or can I just boil soften and pop off the central piece of wing plastic? I must admit I’m a little confused about how to take apart the internal mechanism, despite looking at the tutorial. Any advice would be much appreciated!
