quick update [Mar. 20th, 2006|11:09 pm]

I predict this is going to be a busy week.


I worked a little more on Sparkling Lemonade's symbol, but there is still a lot to go. I also re-painted her eyes.
Banana Rama's eyes are undergoing a re-paint. I think they are a tad too dark right now.
Also worked on the background for Birds of a Feather's symbol. The slate blue just didn't seem vibrant enough, so I made it a little brighter.

I wish I had more time to work on ponies, but my printer broke down over the weekend. So, I was busy researching & purchasing a new one. I have a new printer now, so this upcoming weekend should be better for the ponies! ^_^

oops

I e-mailed you today, and forgot to say that I would use PayPal. Sorry about that.

The ponies are just gorgeous. If I could, I'd buy them all.

Wow, I really enjoy reading about your progress in making custom My Little Ponies. I just attempted making my own recently, and I'm really surprised at how fun & (relatively) easy a project it is. I was wondering, and I can't find this info in any other MLP forums... what temperature do you bake the ponies at when attempting to bake on Sculpy forms? Can the pony really withstand the temperature printed on the package?

Hi there and thanks for the comments. ^_^ I bake them at the suggested temperature...just make sure you remove the hoof magnet on 3rd gen ponies first. I have a tutorial listed on my website. Also, it might melt some of the glue that is holding the hair in...I prefer to remove the hair too. Happy customizing!
