2020 Breyerfest Customs Contest Theme Entry by Danielle Feldman
|This is my first-ever entry for the Breyerfest Customs Contest. |
When I learned that the Theme division this year was "Pairs Well Together" I instantly knew
that I was finally going to customize this pair. I've had the idea kicking around in the back
of my mind for quite some time and even had the Breyer bodies for it. From there, the idea grew to
include this scene. Call me crazy, but I've always wanted to make an in-scale tree!
Breyer Classic QH Foals
|First step was to cut and heat the models into position.|
|Next step, dremel down the excess plastic and |
insert a stable rod to replace a hoof.
|Sculpting in progress. I used sharpie to mark bony landmarks or areas that |
needed to be dremeled down or filled in. Lots of back and forth.
|More sculpting in progress with mane and tail armature added.|
|Handmade dandelions using laser sheets by Mary Kinloch.|
They are time-consuming, but I am hooked!
|My husband's and my initials are carved into the tree.|
|Every leaf was hand stamped and individually glued. I am exhausted!|
|Sometimes they squabble just like their Sesame Street namesakes.|
