Madoc from Start to Finish

I finished my Madoc resin!! This is his story on how he came to be...



He came to me good as new, but as soon as I could I dremelled off his mane, and made him a bald pony!!





I sanded it down a bit after the dremelling as it was rough afterwards. I then sculpted on the mane with my apoxie sculpt, as well as filling in some gaps that were left over after the mane was taken off. The mane was really fun to sculpt, I love fjord ponies and it was relatively easy to do.





Unfortunately I didn't get any photos, but after this I sanded it down a little and primered over the resin in grey primer. This helped me to see where else needed sanding, and it turned out that I hadn't sanded enough! I had to sand down and smooth out the apoxie sculpt that I placed on the neck, and then once this was done I primered again. That was the last time I primered and afterwards I painted him straight!

The base took a while to paint, it just wouldn't dry!! I went for a lush green colour as it looks like the pony is trotting along some beautiful spring grass... Here is the finished Madoc, who I have now names Widget:





Isn't he the cutest little pony?!



I did a little snowy set up for the pony so he looks like he is having a lovely run about in the snow, almost as if he has picked up a mare's scent!! For the background, I just found a snowy picture on my laptop and then just put the rest of the set up on my keyboard, it worked pretty well:



I hope you enjoyed that little journey!
