OC Rain Chaser by Colour-Splashes OC Rain Chaser by Colour-Splashes
Commission for :iconzaphy1415926: based on her OC Rain Chaser. I really love her design and it was a treat translating it into three dimensions! I especially like how her hair turned out.

Media: Polymer clay (Sculpey Primo) on Luna base. Painted with Americana craft paints and sealed with Mod-Podge.

God this is excellent. eAe <3

How do you use the polymer clay on an already made base, doesn't it need to be baked?

Mmhm! I bake the whole pony. I typically bake the body and head separate and attach them on the last bake. If I have to bake with the head on the body (like with certain hairstyles or just cause I feel like it) I always leave the tail hole open (the one I make not the one it comes with. Seriously, its like Hasbro has never seen a horse before. They make the tail where the anus should be. That's messed up!) so the heat can escape. As long as you do that and don't forget about it in the oven it's fine.

Thank you!!! It's really addictive and a fun challenge. I just love to mess with different media in the same project! One thing though is that the plastic doesn't have much in the way of tooth so I have to rough it up a bit to get the clay to stick sometimes. Occasionally I'll buy a base pony that's especially slick for whatever reason and that's a real pain in the ass. Celestia's head is the worst. NOTHING wants to stick to it. Thank God for mineral oil!

ugh! I can't even imagine. I've had to repair things (the eoraptor i sculpted, many dolls) after they crack during baking. And oh my GOD that can be a pain in the butt because it won't stick!

I hear epoxy putty is really good for that, though.

The kind that doesn't care about someone else? I don't have a car. My bike was essentially my car, I walk to BOTH my jobs. I spend 2 hrs or more a day walking. Yeah. FUN.

Thanks! I might retake the pics though...they came out a little weird after I tried adjusting the brightness. I need to make myself a lightbox or something cause all my photos come out really dark.

That or you could take pictures with a different light source, that might do the trick too. :nod:

But yeah, you're very welcome! :dance:

Maybe I'll take photos outside tomorrow? I think the light I've been using makes everything too yellow or something.

Yes, that might be a good option. And I know, right? Either what I take a picture of looks to dark or too bright, it drives me crazy. :XD:
