NaMoPaiMo is coming

It's hard to believe, but NaMoPaiMo is less than three months away.
Several people have asked if I'll be painting my ICEE horse in February. It's tempting, but since she's slated to be my BreyerWest performance horse, I'd like to have her finished sooner than that.
Fortunately, I have a lot of other prospective candidates 
My first choice is this Jennifer Scott Zephyrus resin.
Now let me be clear on this point, Jenn doesn't sell horses that look like this. This was a waste mold casting that I rescued from her trash can.
When I got him he had a broken leg,
no ears,
and some crater-sized holes.
It's taken a lot of time...
and a lot of epoxy... 
but after years on the prepping shelf, I think the end is in sight.
So much work, but I know he's going to be worth it. 
NaMoPaiMo is coming. Prep those ponies! Fill those pinholes!


  1. really great job!~ . I love this resin so much and I just found out about him like a week ago!

  2. I'm pretty sure he's still available on Jenn's website. If I had any sense at all, I would junk this poor guy and buy a perfect production copy. I say this as I continue to fill pinholes!

  3. I already have my girl picked out!
