This is the Breyer Stablemate scale "Thoroughbred" mold, repainted by hand.  In addition to sanding his seams & removing the Breyer stamp, I carved his ears & hooves, as well as some of the details that had been disappearing from the mold, like his mane, mouth, & nostril!  I also carved his sheath so it looks like what it is supposed to be, not just a bump! LOL!  He is now a flashy slightly metallic sorrel Paint gelding with darker shading & golden highlights, multicolored flaxen mane & tail, & detailed/glossed  eyes. His front hooves are shell/natural, his rear hooves are dark brown.  His muzzle is shaded a flesh tone, his nostrils are glossed, & he has a grey spot by his one nostril to give him personality & a unique trait. Matte finish. I began this guy with intentions to sell, but I'm beginning to get very attached.... Please inquire if interested!  Click pic below for further views!

This is the Breyer Stablemate scale "Quarter Horse Stallion" mold, repainted by hand.  Besides sanding the seams & removing the Breyer mark, I carved his ears, nostrils, face (was very thick & convex), muzzle (more refined now), jowl (doesn't look so puffy cheaked, LOL!), chin, hooves, heels, frogs.  I also restored definition to the areas that lost detail in the mold over the years, such as his mouth (it was barely there!), neck/mane, & his legs (they are thinner & more shapely now *G*).  In addition, I made this guy an anatomically correct gelding.  He is a black few spot blanket appaloosa.  I did not make him jet black, as I wanted to shade him, as I do all my models, to add depth & realism.  So he is nearly black with black points & shading.  His appy patterns are mapped (also known as halos, shadows, etc).  His tail is multicolored, growing from white to black.   It really sets off that swished tail!  He has a large star & two socks.   He has two shell colored hooves, two dark - all are striped which is characteristic of Appaloosas.  His nostrils show a touch of pink.  The eyes are detailed with iris, pupil, & sclera (another appy feature) & glossed. Matte finished. I was supposed to sell this guy, too...but I don't know if I can! Please note: though he has a sheen, he is not shiny as he appears in the pictures!  Click image to see other angles & close-ups....

This is the Breyer Stablemate scale "Morgan Mare" mold.  I sanded the seams & removed the Breyer mark, carved her ears (& made them a bit shorter, & equal length!), nostrils, face, muzzle, chin, jowl, hooves, heels, & frogs.  I also re-defined the legs, mouth, & mane area, carved between her rear legs (too much excess plastic, IMO), & added teats.  She is a now gorgeous mahogany bay mare, with red highlights & darker shading, completely painted by hand.  Her black legs blend naturally into her body, as does her dark brownish-grey muzzle.  She has two white socks & one white pastern, each with a shell colored hoof.  Her solid leg has a dark grey hoof.  She sports a blaze with just a hint of flesh near the nose.  Her nostrils show a touch of neutral pink, her eyes are carefully detailed with pupil, iris, ultra thin eyewhite, & just a tiny touch of a reflection, & then glossed.   Matte finished. Yet another intended for sale, please inquire.... Note: she is not glossy like the pictures show!  See more by clicking on pic....

This is the Breyer Stablemate scale "Thoroughbred Mare" mold, remade into a very unique animal.   After the usual sanding of the seams & removing the Breyer mark, & carving her ears, muzzle, chin, jowl, hooves, heels, & frogs, I carved away the excess plastic between her legs (why must the SMs have this so often?! LOL!) & shaped the area into an udder.  I went on to remove her mane completely & alter her tail to that of a zebra.  Then I sculpted a whole new mane, also to look like a zebra.  As if all that wasn't enough, I just had to make her anatomically correct, of course, so I sculpted all appropriate parts under her tail!  Still a lot of hard work & detail to put into this gal at this point!  I hand-painted her an off-white with tan, added stripes (talk about needing a steady hand!) that blend into the tan body, painted her nose & hooves dark grey, & detailed her eyes.  She is now a Quagga!  This is a type of Zebra that was wiped out, but a program has been formed in an effort to bring them back, breeding Zebras with particular traits.  So far most look a lot like regular Zebras (with a tan cast all over), but eventually it is believed that the old-style Quagga (at least the color) will be back.  This custom model is done to look like the original Quagga.  Please click on the image to see more views....
