This little mule sports a roached mane and a bell tail—both made with soft hair. I think I might’ve started with Native Dancer (my favorite G1 mold). He’s been airbrushed and sprayed with Krylon. He was painted on my patio in San Diego where the weather was almost-always perfect for airbrushing outside.
Another chestnut model... I might have been working on a theme. This is a G1 draft horse with some customizing. I would have heated up his little legs with a paint-removing gun—which was very hot and impossible to aim because it had a wide opening like a hair drier. His mane, tail and feathers are sculpted from Gapoxio (which got a bit lumpy and awkward in some places). He has a peg in one hoof and painted-on shoes.
