Custom My Little Pony Bucking by colorscapesart Custom My Little Pony Bucking by colorscapesart
Look ma, two hooves! This little filly was one of the hardest I've done yet! I finally had to use a weight system to get the right balance. To make the dontthrowthepony moments worth it, she doesn't even use her mane for support! She'll be off to her new home in Australia soon :)

Your poses are a breath of fresh air. :) If you don't mind me asking, how do you pull them off? Cutting the pony in half and reforming certain areas with apoxie and mesh? Apologies if you've covered this elsewhere but I haven't gotten the chance to look at the comments for all of your deviations.

You are correct! Apoxie is stronger than sculpey, so it seems to work best. I plan on a tutorial soon, I'll let you know. It's really fairly simple, just time consuming with several dontthrowthepony moments :)

Sweet! I've been using apoxie on all of my newer customs, and it seems to hold up a lot better to wear/dropping/etc than super sculpey. Also I feel a lot better if I don't stick ponies in the oven. :) I've never had anything go horribly horribly wrong, but I have had weird shrinkage problems, where the head was baked for a different amount of time than the body and it shrunk in a weird way. I also feel more confident shipping apoxie.

Do you have a particular mesh you use? I've just been using tinfoil but I've seen other people use a variety of meshes which seem to have different properties.

You do a good job smoothing transitions between the original pony body and the new stuff. Lot of sanding, I bet! :) I look forward to your tutorial!

Hi again!

In answer to your armature question, I typically prefer tinfoil but also you a lightweight aluminum mesh made for sculpting. It's fairly inexpensive and can easily be cut with scissors. Tin foil works well for limbs and seems to provide more stability, while mesh is nice for other details, such as hair and wings. Hope this helps, feel free to ask anything.

Thanks!
Kim

Where do you find it usually? A hardware store? I've been keeping an eye out but I haven't seen any yet, I know my aluminum armature wire is very hard to find (only place I know of that carries it is a pottery store), but it's absolutely fantastic for being able to reshape things as I work. Thanks for answering my nosy questions, lol.
