This is the Breyer Traditional scale "Proud Arabian Mare" mold. I had to repair a broken ear & straighten a crooked front leg. I then went on to do the usual prep work. This model had the worst seams I have dealt with so far!  After removing them & the mold mark, I carved her ears, face, muzzle, nostrils, chin, jowl, bridle-path, hooves, heals, & frogs. I also re-defined details of the mold. Then I added chestnuts & sculpted all appropriate parts under her tail & an udder/teats, so she is truly realistic. I spent a lot of time sanding. This is my very first airbrushed model! She has many layers of increasingly darker shades of grey, building up to black. This gives her shading & depth.   She has a white pastern with a natural/shell striped hoof. That & her star were both masked off before airbrushing & then painted by hand. All her hooves have a lighter growth band at the top.  Her eyes are detailed & glossed, her nostrils & hooves are glossed as well.  Matte finish. She was custom ordered by Nancy H. of Wisconsin.

This is not a repaint, but it is a custom order! This is Laurie Jenson's resincast "LJ Baja"/"LJ Baha".  They are Classic size. The first image is what the two resins looked like before: the no-mane/tail version (for hairing). The second pic is the mare model after I sculpted her mane & tail, the third is the stallion after sculpting his. To see more pix & closer shots, click on the mare & stallion below. These two were done for Beth B. of Missouri.

This is the Breyer Stablemate scale "Draft Horse" mold, slightly remade.  I sanded the seams, removed the Breyer mark, carved the ears, jowl, mouth, & frogs, re-defined/sculpted mouth, eyes, & nostrils. I also sculpted leg feathering, a new mane & tail, & complete stallion anatomy. I airbrushed this guy to a shaded flaxen sorrel, with light underside, shaded body, dark shading on muzzle, inner ears & genitals, flaxen mane, tail, & legs. Hand-painted details. His eyes are tri-colored (brown iris, black pupil, tiny white light reflection) & glossed.  Matte finished. He is now a very nice looking Jutland draft horse.

This is a Traditional scale frolicking colt designed & made by me. He sports carved ears, frogs & bars, slightly flared nostrils, correct colt anatomy & more! I airbrushed the original here into a beautiful shaded bay, painting the details by hand. He has three white socks with natural/shell striped hooves, the black leg has a dark hoof. All hooves have lighter growth bands. He has a large white star, & a snip that has a hint of pink. His inner nostrils show a bit of muted flesh tone. The eyes are detailed with dark iris, black pupil, & thin eyewhites, & glossed. Matte finished. This colt is truly stunning! Please click on the image below to see more pix of this guy! He will eventually be offered as a very limited edition in resin, "Kickin It Up".   Too bad that will likely mean this one's paint job will be destroyed :o(. 

Update (Oct 2000): This prototype no longer exists. Some changes were made & he sports a new paint job. Please look further down the page (and/or go to the link posted above) for current images & more info.

I also have another soon-to-be resin, but since I didn't have the chance to paint the original before he was shipped to be cast, I do not have him pictured in color here (yet). Until pieces are available & I can paint them, he can only be seen under Original Sculptures or through Resins-to-be.  Please feel free to take a look!!!

This is the Breyer Classic scale "Arabian Family Mare" mold (aka "Classic Arab Mare").  Seams & Breyer mark removed, sanded all over, hooves & all frogs/bars & heels carved, ears & jowl carved, mouth refined, right foreleg straightened (it is normally angled strangely inward on this mold), left ear straightened (it was at an outward angle), left nostril resculpted (was flattened), brow bones widened (eyes had been out further than the bones), cheek bones lengthened (her face looked to narrow from the side), chestnuts added, left rear toe sculpted (was chopped off by the factory), mare anatomy sculpted (she will have a foal eventually, so her udder is fuller) as well as those unmentionables ;o). I airbrushed her to a shaded mahogany bay Tobiano pinto, with details & whites painted by hand. She has red highlights, darker shading, & black points. All her legs are white, therefore her hooves are natural/shell striped with subtle growth bands. I gave her a white star, & a neutral pink tinted snip & spot on chin/lips.  She has a multi-colored mane & tail, where the white & black blend nicely together using greys & browns.  Her pinto patterns are mapped (also know as halos or shadows...when the dark skin runs into the white fur of the spots & shows through a bit). She has carefully detailed eyes (dark brown iris, black pupil, ultra-thin eyewhites, tiny highlight dot) & they are highly glossed of course. Matte finished. This mare was custom ordered by Caroline C. of Mississippi, who requested a bay Pintabian with a snip. I had fun making up the patterns & other markings :o). Please click on the picture below & take a look at more angles, close-ups & some details! Please note: she is not quite as dark as some of the images show, & the highlights are more red.

This is a "Rimfire" resin (sculpted by Pamela DeMuth of Thunderstruck Studio). He is a Traditional size gelding. I sanded & prepped him, then used primer. No alterations were made. I airbrushed him in gorgeous shades of golden palomino- creamy belly, with golden shading & highlights, metallic cast... truly stunning!!! Some details hand-painted. I gave him greyish brown shading on his muzzle, around his eyes, & in his groin area, & brown shading in his ears. He has off-white & white mixed mane & tail, to give it more depth & interest. His bold white blaze is flesh toned on the muzzle, & also has some "mapped" areas where the grey skin meets the white/flesh. As an added touch, he has a little grey spot on his upper lip. Nostrils have a touch of neutral pink inside. I gave him a white fetlock & a high sock, these legs have natural/shell striped hooves. The other legs have brown hooves. All hooves have lighter growth bands & greyish brown soles. He also has greyish-brown chestnuts. Eyes were done with the utmost care to produce realism & detail- teeny eyewhites, brown iris rimmed in dark brown, black pupil, & glossed of course. Matte finished. This gelding was custom ordered by Caroline C. of Mississippi, who requested a golden palomino with a blaze, leaving leg markings & other details up to me :o).

This is a Limited Edition "Mosey-On"  resin (sculpted by myself! See Sculptures & Resins/Resins-to-Be....).  He is about Stablemate size & is quite detailed (carved ears, frogs with cleft, chestnuts, wrinkles, gelding anatomy, etc.). I sanded, prepped, then used primer.  This particular piece was the first one painted/ordered, so he is engraved with a numeral one. I airbrushed him to a very unusual color: a silver dun. Details hand-painted.  He is shaded grey with brown points & primitive markings. His groin & inner ears are shaded with brown, eartips darker.   His mane & tail are mixed browns.  The dorsal stripe & leg barring were done carefully by hand.  His nostrils have a touch of neutral pink.  I painted his chestnuts & soles a greyish-tan, his hooves dark brown.  His eyes are "amber", a lighter brown iris with darker rim & black pupil, glossed. Matte finished. This gelding was custom ordered by my husband Nick, who chose this color because it was unique :o).  {I think it was just to make things tough on me ;o).  Just kidding!  I like to do unusual colors & markings.}  To see more pix of this guy, please click the image below....

Note about Mosey-On orders: Due to the limited run of this resin & the fact that color possibilities are nearly endless for a stock-type horse, I do not plan on repeating colors I have already painted on him.  I *may* make exceptions if Mosey is to be used as a portrait model of your real horse, but I won't guarantee it. Get your requests in quick if you wish to get a certain color! :o)

Also, in case you haven't been to Mosey-On's page to read it by now :o), I will reiterate my policies here: None of Yvonne's resins are to be changed in any way. Painted pieces must not be repainted, altered, etc. Unfinished
pieces (if any) must not be altered (no repositioning etc).
