Lovely Morgan too Very Happy

Do you mind sharing how you do dapples? Do you do the q-tip technique? That's okay if you don't want to share. Wink

Thank you, LeeAnn & Abby!
LeeAnn, I used to use Q-tips, but now I use very tiny brushes and applicators. Wink

I am so glad you succeeded posting pictures! Very Happy With your excelent works, I suspect it will turn in an excelent contribution to the forum. Very Happy
I watched again your Shire, I use to judge the figures mainly based on their sculpts and I always found this figure very decent. With your repaint it rivals some composition Shire horses sculpts and puts the Safari figure very steps forward when compared with some other Shires from other known brands. I do really like it. Very Happy

Thank you! Yes, sometimes you really have to look hard to imagine the potential of a sculpture because the factory paint is rather plain, or not done well. The Safari Shire was originally black, and his face had pink that was too bright. Razz I usually try to buy the sloppiest ones to re paint, and leave the better ones in the store for people to buy who will likely leave them as-is.b:)

I'm afraid I think I only have one or 2 others that would be of interest here. The rest are Breyer horses or artist resins. Sad (we can't post those here, can we?)

Exactly, I think it should be exciting to repaint a figure that doesn't look good at all and reveal with a good painting the good sculpt hidden behind the poor manufacturing painting.
Why Breyer and artists resins cannot be shown here? We have a small group of Breyer fans but an interesting community of horse lovers always very interested in repaintings. Feel free to to show what you want on forum as long as it gives you joy. If anything is wrong I call the crocodile... or the macaque... or the Siamese cat... Fjord... Laughing

Laughing Fjord to your service Wink


I'm very interested in your ARs. I may have put a down payment on a new one recently. Wink I wish I could have more, if only resin wasn't so expensive!

Yes, the are expensive, LeeAnn! I try to sell custom Breyers to fund my artist resins, but it seems I buy much more than I sell! Razz

OK Roger! Then I will share the story of a small Artist Resin (a little smaller than the Safari Shire).
This is an Animal Artistry (UK) Friesian Mare. It was one of the very first resins I bought back in 2003. It traveled with me over the years as I moved to 2 different states, waiting patiently for paint. Then.....she fell over on the shelf and broke her 2 front legs (they are made of very brittle resin material)....and waited some more. Sad FINALLY I repaired the legs in February & she could stand again! And she waited some more until I finished painting her in October. She went on to win a 1st place in workmanship at her very first show. I guess it was a good repair job! Very Happy

Hmm, any chance you show in Region 9 at all? Wink

Thank you, LeeAnn & Jonas! I love you

LeeAnn, I showed at a few region 9 shows when I lived in NJ (I worked in product development for Breyer from 2006-2010) but mostly trekked back up to region 10 to show (where I was originally from & where I am now). I went to a show in PA back in maybe 2007 or maybe 2008......was it yours? Very Happy

Seeing how wonderful it is it doesn't surprise your good performance with it. Very Happy
Interesting also that it was originally a Friesian and you gave a new look to that horse. Very Happy
It is great that you keep sharing your works and it is also interesting to know that you're linked to Breyer. :)

No, that wasn't mine but I'm holding another one in May of next year and I live and show in Region 9, so I was curious if we would ever cross paths. Very Happy

Working for Breyer is like a dream job! That must have been fun bounce

I have no regrets, and learned a lot there, but I can assure you, it was not Disney World! It was 100% work. Very Happy

LeeAnn were you at NAN in Harrisburg in 2013? Perhaps our paths have already crossed? It was my very first time at the nationals and I have to say, that Saturday was one of the most memorable days of my life! :)

Roger, I have to admit, painting friesians is is not really my thing. Too much black! Very Happy Black can have beautiful undertones, though!
