cuter than buttons... [Jun. 1st, 2005|06:58 pm]
[mood |tiredtired]

Works in progress. Very close to finishing Wrangler. That little bandana even has nice finished edges. The Air Force Pony has her eyes repainted & the initials on the other side done. I should have a little bit of time this Sunday to work on customs. Saturday's full...I have a birthday party & graduation to attend!

Also almost finished with this set of custom wings. I'm planning on adding more light purple highlights, and it still needs a coat of iridescent glitter.

I'm still working on the Decals Tutorial. Just got sidetracked by the Midsummer Contest. Oh! That's right...I almost forgot that I'm supposed to code the voting pages for that! ^_^

I'm impressed!

Wrangler looks great! I love the bandana ^.^
Your pony wings are amazing, I've never made a decent pair myself. Do you have any imformation about making them? Materials, paints, fitting, etc.
It would help me out a lot!

Re: I'm impressed!

Hello there! Thanks for the comments. ^_^
The wings are hand-painted with acrylics on clear plastic. *cracks knuckles*
I always seem to have little bits of plastic around...I think these are from an overhead transparency or cut from a clear container. It takes quite a long time to paint all of those little details...and they are painted on both sides!
Fitting them is easy but tedious...just cut little slivers off the tabs until they fit into your flutter pony. Good luck!
