'Aishiteru' is ready to order!

I am sorry for the delay in getting this one ready to order. I will be pouring the mould of the donkey mother and foal very soon, but I thought I should get sales of the original sculpture underway in the meantime if anyone is interested!



Aishiteru is the name for this lovely pair as named by the competition winner. The sculpture is priced at £15 per copy or two for only £20! The price includes postage to the UK only. If you are interested, please drop me a message using the contact form at the side of this page.

I can't wait to paint one, and to show you the finished donkey piece!

Two Stablemates Finished

I finished painting two of the stablemates I had been working on. First up is the Andalusian I resculpted.

I do like him with the straighter profile, he looks more regal in my opinion.

The second one is the trotting warmblood. I decided to go for a plain colour, he is striking enough as is and you can literally see him in a dressage set-up as he trots down a long diagonal!

Sorry, he is a bit wonky on his base in this photo!

I hope you like!

Whites, whites, whites...

Sometimes I wonder why I paint tobiano horses, the whites always take such a long time!

I thought I should show you this group shot I took a few weeks back. I know some have been painted now but you can see what I have in the pipeline.

Bye for now!

Stablemate WIPs

Upon referring back to this post, I have some updates on how I have been getting on with all of these little ponies!

As inspired by my newest micro mini addition from Maggie Bennett, I thought I could make this one with the arched back a rolling horse. So far so good, I haven't moved those back hooves yet but I do plan to.

This next one is a simpler one, yet I think the change is so effective! All I did was move the two standing hooves so he is floating. I was wondering how to attach him to a base more effectively, but I decided that using a piece of clear rod onto a detachable base was best as it saves me from drilling into his hooves further. Now all he needs is paint!

Just like these two, who also have the same bases. I am rather excited for these dynamic poses!

These next three to show you are ready for paint! I think in this photo there was some more prepping to do but that has all been taken care of now. Now it is time to switch my airbrush back on... All of the horses above need colour ideas, but I think I have colours for the bottom three planned already.

The last one to show you is this Warmblood mare. This is the first time I have ever sculpted a plaited mane and tail. Trust me to do it in a fiddly scale! I am very happy with how it is going. I have stopped for the time being though, as I do need to dremel some ear holes so I can wire reinforce them. But she is going to be one pretty lady!

I know scale-wise the plaited tail is probably too thick but it still looks good in my eyes, so I am not too bothered!

I hope you enjoy!
