PostSubject: Brigitte Eberl Salome resin Walkaround!    Thu Jun 25, 2015 12:09 pm

I see people posting these all over the place, so I thought I'd post one myself. And as Seraphina (Salome) is the only horse I have recently taken tons of photos of, she's my Walkaround victim! Wink
She's the OF version cast for MPV and has some serious flaws, but let's pretend they are not there! Because apart from them, she's just gorgeous.
So here she is:

She's chestnut, very full of herself and super proud! I've named her Seraphina (also nicknamed her The Red Witch) Obviously an Arabian Mare. The sculpture is extremely detailed. And if it was prepped better it would have been fantastic! However, mine needs some serious sanding. But, we pretend the gauges are not there! I've done some touch ups to her markings and hooves and they look much better now.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] A closeup (sort of) of her head, just to show the attitude. This lady has a mind of her own.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Her off side is just as pretty!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] Front side view :)
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] And here is a rear view. The least flattering one. Her tailbone needs tonning down, as right now looks just like someone splashed some black paint over it (which isn't exactly untrue) I'm planning on using pastels for it, but really need to get some free time and rainless weather.
All in all, I am rather chuffed with my girl, despite her flaws. She's an Eberl, and a Resin, and she only cost me 79 euro! So I can't complain :)

I just adore her sculptures!! Her sculpting of heads is exquisite!! I don't have very many resins but I do have some of the Breyer horses she's sculpted! Definitely plan on adding some more to my ever growing collection Wink

I was just on their site and trying to decide whether to buy her or not! Thanks for sharing! Your photos show her much better than the ones on the site :)

May I ask, do you think she is the same type of resin that Artist Resins usually are, or is the material more like the industrial resin-mixes that is used in cheaper figurines and statues? Do you think she has wire reinforcements in her legs? I was thinking of customizing mine so I just would like to know what I'm getting myself into before purchasing :)

I think the resin isn't normal artist resin. It's a lot heavier.  As for the wire reinforcement I'm sure she has because there is a wire poking out of her leg :)

Thanks for the info! :) I sent them a message asking about the material. I hope it's something that can be customized without issues!

The material is rather breakable, so not entirely sure how well it would work for customising. it also seems harder than the normal artist resin. Not heard about anyone who customised her yet. :\
