PostSubject: Schleich Holstein mare restoration   Mon Sep 08, 2014 11:07 am

Today is a day of horse customs, so I am adding a repaint of Schleich retired Holstein mare, which I have received from dear friend Rogerio. I have been thinking about removing the mane, but this figurine has such a charm that I've decided that it wouldn't be a good idea.

I've tried to find some interesting coats for Holstein horses, but I haven't found any that I would love, so I've decided that I will leave the figurine as it is, just with a new layer of paint.

And here's the result!

Agata, sehe's very beautiful! I'm also a high fan of this model - love to customize her and I think you made a fantastic job! I'm happy you didn't remove the mane, she's very calm and happy with that Very Happy
Cannot wait to see the other customs you said you'll do bounce bounce cheers sunny

I am glad that figure ended in your hands, your decision of restoring instead of customizing was excelent. I find the Holsteiner mare an excelent figure, it almost doesn't look from the same brand has those braided horses we see on local shops these days.
What is already good doesn't need big changes, and to restore a good figure is not a bad thing, I already saw on STS some fantastic Lineol figures having new lifes due to the talented hands of their restorers. Very Happy

She's gorgeous, great job. She didn't even need to change her coat at all, still a fantastic figure.

Really nice outcame for the mare.
She is a good old model (not a toyisch girl thing)
You have upgraded her to a better place from;
old beat up model horse,
to nice backyard horse on retirement after a long carier Razz

Lovely work!
Can you tell me what kind of paint you are using? I'm new to restorations, but would love to learn.
Best,
