I love what you did with the Shleich horse, I always thought they made their horses too stocky, especially for a Hano dressage horse. It looks much better now you've customised!!

I tried doing this years ago with my childhood cheap toys, but didn't use a primer and used watercolours lmao. Didn't go well! I wanna try again though...

Do you strip the original paint somehow or just paint over? And how do you do the shading like on the blue roan, the darker legs?

Satin Reign aka "Misty"... my life, my love, my everything.

Just finished another one.. took along time because I lost enthusiasm with all my school work!

Here is Karma, my brown welsh pony gelding, who took 28th Janurary - 5th April to finish lol

He is glossed and has pinking but the camera doesnt pick it up (the pinking that is ).
This one will probably eventually be for sale so pm me if interested so I can get back to you when I have my clearout :).

Are the schleichs hard to do? I used to love playing with them when I was little, and I deserted them somewhere in the woods when I was 9 or so.. Just recently found them. They all seem in ok shape except my black/white paint gypsy vanner has some dirt in her mane. However, the once grey arabian is totally brown/tan, so I might try to paint it. I'll post a picture...

Like any horse painting, it takes time to get paints right (eg. When doing pinking) so I use alot of reference pictures for eyes, mapping etc. I also use acrylic paints as I find them enjoyable and less messier than pastels are to work with.

Can wait to see your picture, **** not even plastic horses can resist the urge to take themselves mud-bathing *LOL*
