How it's made: the ingredients

For this picture I collected all the things I use to make my sculptures. Not necessarily in the quantities I need for one sculpture, otherwise you would see a heap consisting mainly of nitrile gloves, aluminum foil and toothpicks.

Not pictured here: the 4000+ reference pictures on my iPad, and the little saw I use when things have gone wrong badly. And my sweet husband who is just the greatest support.

I like to keep the process as simple as possible.

Premier Club Ponies

You might have seen them already. :) My new sculptures for Breyer, a Welsh Mountain Pony mare and her foal. They are the first release in the 2019 Premier Club. You can sign up for the club on the Breyer website
I really enjoyed seeing Django produced in plastic and the myriad of Django customs that followed. I hope you are going to have fun collecting and customizing these guys as well!
