I've had a pretty busy period for the past few months, so I did not have time to put these pictures online. But I am very happy to announce that this custom is now officially finished! He will be on his way to Germany.
The original model was from the Breyer "Appaloosa Performance Horse" mold. A lot of resculpting was done: from a new neck, mane and tail to eyelashes and resculpted hooves and head. Many deep
brown and chestnut layers are mixed in the coat which gives him a very original coloring.

I recently finished these two pieces.
The first is a roan on the "Old Dreaming Lady" resin mold, sculpted by Jasmin Ruhland. She had some bubbles near her mouth from the resin casting, so I had to resculpt her teath and gum.
The second is a custom from a Breyer micro mini mold. A lot of work is done on her. She has: new manes and tail, totally resculpted head, new neck, added horseshoes, resculpted hoofs and added teeny tiny eyelashes. Check out the gallery to see more!
