In other news...



The pony on the left is 1st gen pony with a sculpted gumball machine symbol. I found a piece of curved plastic that works just right as the "container". I still have to paint the symbol and fill in the "gumballs". The pony is going to have kanekalon or saran hair in primary colors. Haven't thought of a name for this one yet.

The pony on the right is going to be a gargoyle pony. I know it's not a new idea, but I thought it would work well with this sitting pose bait. Her wings were shaped from wire mesh and embedded firmly into the pony's body. It's also an experiment with Efa-plast, an air drying sculpting medium that is similar to Paperclay. I will be posting a product review once the pony is complete. It's an interesting alternative to Fimo and epoxy formulations. The pic on the right is just for fun...I was playing with a clay extruder. ^_^ The completed pony isn't going to have "hair", LOL!

Re: Can't stand it!

LOL, well, I just posted the entries and this year's are definitely worth the wait! There are some amazingly creative designs. ^_^

Voting starts Wednesday and runs for 1 week. I'm still working on the voting form...it's probably going to use IP checking and/or cookies (I don't like cookies, though). I also check them by hand. Last year, we had a lot of cheaters. =(

I'm going to say it's one vote per person. You're not allowed to advertise your entry (like telling all your friends/relatives to vote for you). If you have more than one person at the address who wants to vote (like several kids), you can e-mail the votes to me.
