With the new year, I too need to get some backlog done. This guy is the first off the trade list (gotta feed the tack addiction). I just love the Brio resin! Hope you like him Vikki, just can't wait to see the tack. Buckskin silver is one of my favorite colors to paint, I really need to do one for myself. One down, and one to go Vikki!
Speaking of tack addiction, look what came in the mail!
I wanted Tiffilicious to have traditional saddleseat tack, so I even got her a new doll, WITHOUT pink! I show her as a Park Pleasure division horse, set tail, but not a five gaiter. Jen, this bridle is fantastic! (as always)
The hard thing about making her was for her NOT to look like the a walker..so I had to stretch out those clock horse legs and refine them. She also had to have new eyes and bigger, finer nostrils. I love the Salinero head, but the saddlebred standard calls for large, expressive eyes and a straight, not convex profile. So her head actually has been totally resculpted. When I did Lady Liberty and Freedom Generator, the head barely had to be touched.
Finally some better baby pictures of Wap Divana. She is still for sale, but Upwey Brass is on his way to his new home.
Got a marwari in the works next, stay tuned! Pictures will be on the blog first!
Wap Divana is qualified in halter and workmanship for 2013-2014
