Spent a bit of time unwinding, knitting, and working on the ponies this weekend!
Sure feels good to be customizing again! ^_^
Maiden's Mist got repainted a matte white with a touch of pearlescence. Her horn is dappled in golden paint. I added a hint of blush...doesn't she look heavenly? ^_^ Eye & symbol painting are up next.
The other pony is Florabella. I love her florescent hair! I was planning to leave her rump plain, but there is a trace of pink from the previous symbol there. So, she got a new symbol, sketched in ink like her hooves. I picked my favorite designs & enlarged it. It's only on the display side. The symbol will be tinted & then coated with matte varnish. This actually isn't a good technique to use, even though it's way easier to draw than it is to paint. The ink smudges when the clear coat is applied & it just doesn't look as crisp as I'd like. Spray varnish is an option, but I hate that stuff. Tends to be sticky if it's not a fresh can & shaken very thoroughly.
