Proof

Just in case you think it's all centaurs and horse head masks around here, I'll have you know there's a lot of finishwork happening, too.
In fact, as of yesterday, this Karen Gerhardt Caprice resin is officially done.
This guy was gifted to me last December. He was one of the of the original artist proofs and had been painted solid, shiny black.
After repairing his many breaks, I gave him a new coat of paint. He's still black, but now he has a small star, painted eyes, hooves and chestnuts and a bit of shading.
In honor of his past... 
I've decided to name him Proof.
Sometimes they really do name themselves!

    1. Thanks! He's prettier in person. Between the turned head and his black color, he is *really* hard to photograph.

    1. It's also the name of a Dick Francis book, which is an added bonus to me. :D

  3. Nice. Black and chestnut are my favorite horse colors.

  4. Nice restoration. How do you get the print on the halter nameplate? I'd like to try making my own nameplate halter for one of my favorite models.
    Thanks!
