Awesome! Ican't wait to see pics :)

I can't do that, but I have always wanted to get a custom breyer of my gelding Romeo, I just can't find anyone that does it.

I've only tried painting a Breyer once, and I made the mistake of trying a dappled grey for my first one, so I never finished it. XD I'll be trying again with my own sculpture eventually though, so I'll probably look around for a good tutorial. Just wondering, do you use airbrushing to paint yours?

Haha awesome, I don't think I could do a dappled :) Sculpting is awesome! I wish I had that stuff lol I use acyrlics and paint by hand - the Paint breyer custom you saw took me 4 days and I painted his patches with the end of a paint brush XD I wish I could afford a airbrusher, but I make do without :)

Good luck with customising I envy your artwork ^^ :)

OH forgot to add that before I paint them I usually prime them - helps the paint stay on better. I use Monte Matre (spell) for priming with - comes in a tub and says its for wood and paper on the back but it works nicely on breyers :P

If you want to seal the breyer or whatever after you paint it - use hairspray.. sounds stupid but it REALLY works

Lol, there are some parts that turned out alright, but the paint kept drying before I could finish with blending or adding details. It now sits unfinished on my dresser. XD I'd love to use an airbrusher too, although I've actually seen some professionals use everything from pastels to oil paint, and it seems to work pretty well for them.

Thanks for the tips! I would have never thought about using hairspray, that sounds like a really good idea. I'll make sure to post pictures once I actually do get around to painting the sculpture I'm working on. :)
