Sunday lazy Sunday

The entire Buxton family is still recovering from yesterday's trauma drama.  Right now Seth is napping in the basement, the kids are chilling with Sponge Bob,
and the dogs...
are holding down their respective beds.
I'm hanging out in the studio, but mostly I'm just puttering.  I've done a little bit of prepwork... 
plus some leather dyeing.  I'm trying out a new color for Tiffany's pony saddle.  So far I'm not a fan!
The tack friendliness article will have to wait a little longer.  I'm way too busy being lazy to write it today.

  1. Hope everything is ok, Jennifer! Lazy Sundays are wonderful things though!!! I've had one today, besides working on ponies and doing wash. No other commitments!

  2. You have such gorgeous dogs Jennifer - what a wonderful family! :)

    And the puttering days can be the most successful. There are so many oppertunities to get things done that have been put off, and for hobby chores and such! ;)

  5. Who's the resin behind Bint Soraya? I don't recognize him. And I must admit I'm totally jealous of your resin collection. First Impression is one of my favorites.

  8. I *do* have some nice resins of both the painted and unpainted varieties. I should mention, though, that the Lone Star isn't mine. He belongs to a friend. I'm just prepping him and customizing the name.

    The thoroughbred resin in the back is Chances Are by Edwin Bogucki. He was the result of one of my earliest tack for resin trades. He used to be painted, but the finishwork wasn't very good so I decided to strip him. Then I thought maybe he'd look better with bigger feet and a braided mane. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to match the texture once the old mane was removed (now I'd use messo for that!) so I went ahead and removed all the texture from his body. Ugh. Anyway, he ended up without much sculptural detail. I sent him to a painter but he came back unpainted. He's truly a problem child!

    I'd like to go back and re-detail him someday, but I'm not sure my skills are up to the task. Yet.

  9. Lazy days are definitely the best- sometimes you just need a day to wind down inbetween all the hectic goings on of life.
    All your uncompleted projects would make for an interesting performance setup someday!

  12. Tack friendliness will make a great article when you get around to it. Every now and then I go stare at the People's Plastic Horse Liberation Army (as le boyfriend calls the collection) to try and come up with new performance ideas, but so often I'm brought up short by an errant forelock or wisp of mane.
