Appaloosa

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 a Limited Edition "Mosey-On"  resin. I sanded, prepped, then used primer.  This one was the second piece ordered/painted, so he is engraved with the numeral two. I airbrushed him to a shaded mahogany bay no-spot blanket appaloosa, details hand-painted.  Besides the blanket pattern, he has Appaloosa breed characteristics such as mottling in the groin area, subtly on muzzle & around eyes, all his hooves are boldly striped with various colors. I gave him a white stripe down face, snip mottled. I had fun with his markings: unique white fetlock on left foreleg, with black spot on pastern & ermine mark; white coronet on right foreleg, with ermine marks; white mark/spot on left rear coronary band; white coronet on right rear leg extending to fetlock behind, with black spot & ermine mark.  He has greyish brown soles & chestnuts. His eyes are detailed with the appy characteristic white sclera, brown iris rimmed in dark brown, black pupil. Finished with satin protective sealer, eyes & nostrils glossed.  This guy is a beauty!  Custom ordered by Rachel D. of Minnesota, who asked for a bay appy with anything from a star to a thin blaze, just a bit of white on the feet, & a "little flakey no spot blanket"... just a basic feel to go on- she wanted my "artistic touch to it".  So that is what I did :o) .

L.E. "Mosey-On"  resin. I sanded, prepped, then used primer. This one was the seventh piece painted, so he is engraved with the numeral seven. I airbrushed him in white, everything else was hand-painted. He is a patterned leopard Appaloosa, with lots of breed characteristics. He has pink tinting where the skin would show through the thin white hair (i.e. muzzle, eyes, girth area, flanks, groin), & mottling in those areas as well. His appy patterns are various degrees of brown (some nearly black), & many are halo spots. His hooves are natural/shell colored & boldly striped. A few ermine marks are on a couple of coronets. He has a multi-colored mane & tail (whites, greys, browns, blacks). Chestnuts & soles of his hooves are a greyish tan. Inner nostrils are neutral pink, ears are shaded with grey. His eyes are detailed with the appy distinctive white sclera, brown iris rimmed in dark brown, black pupil. Finished with protective sealer, matte finish, eyes & nostrils glossed. This is an "Artist's Choice"  color (not ordered in this color/pattern). No longer available for sale/trade- he is happily owned by Jan P. of Minnesota!

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).

This is the Breyer Stablemate scale "Scrambling Foal" mold (I call it "frolicking"). Seams & Breyer mark removed, sanded, hooves & all frogs carved, ears resculpted & carved, chestnuts added, filly anatomy etc sculpted, mane altered slightly, tail raised. I hand painted her to a neutral grey & white. I then carefully etched each hair into the grey areas, allowing the white undercoat to show through (this is my first "etchie"). I painted her mane & tail a mix of grey, dark grey, & black...with a bit of white in her mane at the withers. I painted black appaloosa spots on her rump...pinto & appy patterns together make this little gal a "Pintaloosa". She has a cute wispy star, where the white follows the direction of the hair on her forehead. Her legs are white, with natural/shell striped hooves. She has mottling on the groin area, under her tail, & on her tailbone. Chestnuts & soles are tan. Her inner nostrils are light pink. Her eyes are detailed with the appy characteristic white sclera, brown iris rimmed in dark brown, black pupil. Finished with protective sealer, matte finish, eyes glossed. Click below to see more of her please!

L.E. "Mosey-On"  resin. This particular piece was to be a portrait model of the customer's real horse, so I needed to make some necessary alterations. This included a gender change (it is now an anatomically correct mare), and resculpted mane & tail, all to reflect that of her living counterpart. I sanded, prepped, then used primer. This resin was the twelfth piece painted, so she is engraved with the numeral twelve. I airbrushed her to a shaded bay. Roaning & other details hand-painted. The roan areas were placed as precise as possible, to match pictures provided of the real horse "Miss Chief Two Deck" , a beautiful Appaloosa (click here to see the real mare). Even the mottling pattern (dark grey & flesh/pink) on her muzzle, udder, & under her tail was reproduced as well as I could from photos presented! I noticed "Missy" had a darker/smutty area around her withers & on her eartips/edges, & a creamy-tan color at her armpits & in front of her udder...I made sure to include those on her portrait. Her mane & tail are black with white hairs...again painted like the real horse. Her legs are black, chestnuts & soles are (slightly greyish) tan. She has dark grey & flesh striped hooves...not very many pix to go from but I did my best to duplicate that as well! Her eyes are detailed with the Appaloosa's trademark white sclera, brown iris rimmed in dark brown, black pupil. Clear-coat protected, matte finish, eyes glossed, nostrils & hooves semi-glossed. The very happy owner is Jamie S. of Washington. Click on "Missy" below to see more pix of her!
