Mmm, turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Mmm, deep fried turkey. And we wonder why it's so hard to lose weight...

On the CM Draft: I put him in a precarious place. He took a nose dive and at first I thought there was very little damage. When I looked closer I realized he had significant damage. I have pulled his eBay auction. I am repairing the damage, and I'm going to do some more improvements while I'm at it, so he'll be better than ever! Then he'll be up for sale again.

On eBay

The CM PS Drafter is up on eBay:

I've been working on SM-scale sculptures lately: a trotting PRE stallion and a trotting Saddlebred mare. Also on MMs, a whole batch. They should be done really soon (like tomorrow for the micros, I hope). Pictures soon.

Oh, and I still have Bartimaeus resins for sale! I'm generally shipping them out the same day as I receive payment, so if you want one now's a good time to order. Email me at if you want one.

I'm bad at going to bed on time.

Why is it that even when I'm tired I don't feel like going to bed?

Spent today doing advertising-related stuff and learning how to update my website (no, it's not up yet), and a little bit of actual finishwork. Not really all that productive of a day, I'm afraid, although I did learn some stuff.

It was windy and wet so I haven't been able to get final pictures of the CM PS drafter yet--maybe tomorrow (today!). I realized that the other drafter I'm working on won't be haired unless I change my plan for her a lot--she has feather on her legs that I wasn't planning to grind off and I don't like the combination of sculpted hair and real hair. But maybe the CM Breyer Cleveland Bay I have here will get hair once I'm further along on him (very minor CM, just correcting a few things).

A Haired Custom

Never really haired a custom before. Haven't even done hardly any customs, to tell the truth. I've found I really like doing them. I probably spent way too much time on this one, but I'm But quite happy with him! I'm still finishing up his hair, making sure no glue is showing and such. I really like hairing, it's fun, more realistic than sculpted, and easier for me to do (I have such a hard time sculpting manes and tails). This guy (he needs a name!) even has leather on the underside of his tail bone, which is sort-of-poseable (I wouldn't move it too much, but it is!). He'll be on eBay soon--once I've 100% finished him! Hope he sells well so I can justify doing more CMs. It took forever to do all the tiny hair detail in his complex overo markings. I need a better way to get nice solid white than dozens and dozens of layers, but I'm not sure that such a thing exists.

I have another CM started--a Stone trotting draft to a galloping mare. I think I'll hair her too!
