Fat Dolphin #001-003

By | November 14, 2017

Behold the majesty of the sea! These little guys were part of the ’round 2′ in the Fat Animal Magnet Christmas present lineup and I can’t remember if I made them or the Orcas first. (This is why I really shouldn’t wait a year to do posts! *facepalm*) This was another sculpture that ended up needing… Read More »

Wooden Dolphin Magnet #005

By | August 8, 2017

Reflections on water or spider webbing in turquoise… the patterns were so similar I couldn’t help but play around! This handsome gal is the result of my attempts to learn how to paint a faux version of Battle Mountain turquoise. I fell in love with the bronze and gold highlights in the rock and was… Read More »

Wooden Dolphin Magnet #003

By | July 26, 2017

And lo, upon the waves rode a rainbow of dolphin awesomeness! Well okay, more like half a rainbow, give or take. (The awesome half, of course 😉 ). I’ve been pretty much addicted to this color combination ever since I tried it out on the Pimped Rides Live model horse donation piece. As soon as… Read More »

Big Orange Bash Donation Fat Pony Magnets (#004-014)

By | June 16, 2017

Normally I donate custom model horses to model horse live shows, but this time around I figured a small herd of Fat Pony magnets might be more fun! 🙂 I’ve made donations for Big Orange Bash (Knoxville, TN) before and I’m more than happy to keep them hock deep in magnets or models. The show is a… Read More »

Fat Buffalos #001-004

By | May 1, 2017

It’s May and I still have a bunch of these old posts left to catch up on! Yikes! O_O; Most of my relatives are from Buffalo, NY so when it came time to picking critters for the Fat Animal Magnets for Christmas, these guys were a shoe-in! 🙂 I made an extra buffalo because I figured I’d need at… Read More »

Leaping Horse #006

By | January 6, 2017

This little guy was painted back in September 2015… I really need to get these darned galleries caught up! Every so often plaster casts don’t come out of the mold quite right– but that just means I get to play around with them! 🙂 This little guy is a true OOAK (one of a kind)… Read More »

Clydesdale Horse Head #004

By | December 22, 2016

This handsome fella was painted back in January, but 2016 has been the year of Art Post Procrastinations, so we’ll just pretend he was posted on time. The one great thing about sculpting and casting my own magnets is that I never feel limited in how to customize them.. so it was only a matter of time… Read More »

Christmas Pony (Breyer Stablemate)

By | December 27, 2015

Once upon a December there was someone who said ‘a pony’ when her cousin asked what she wanted for Christmas… and so she got one! To be fair, I am pretty sure she was kidding and/or wasn’t expecting a little bundle of metallic-ly awesome appaloosa, but this is why when you should be careful what you ask… Read More »

Silverheart is a custom order done on a Breyer Stablemate G3 Stock Horse mare and is only the second time I’ve ever painted this mold (Schneekatze being the first). She’s a silver snowcap appaloosa with metallic black points, only a few small spots, silver and bronze striped hooves, bronze eyes, and a heart-shaped star on… Read More »

Sparklewulf of the Clan McSparklewulf

By | September 11, 2013

I had honorable intentions when I started painting this little guy, I really did… and then they fell prey to the lure of the shiny. Of course when you start with the idea of ‘I’m going to paint a purple wolf’ moving onto ‘I’m going to paint a purple SPARKLE wolf’ really isn’t that big… Read More »
