North Star by lovelauraland North Star by lovelauraland
North Star is one of a set of peg rearing ponies I am currently working on!
She has taken a while to finish as I came upon several problems, one being the fact that I couldn't paint the white stars onto her body as the dye was bleeding through!!! :(
I have as you can see worked round it by using cut out stars and painting over them in white! :D
Her hooves have been sculpted to make them look like clefthooves (not sure if thats the right word) with lots of sculpted hair.
I have spray painted her legs in silver and white and her hooves have been painted a light lilac.
Her wings are made from wire and apoxy sculpt and have been painted in black with white tips, I have added a few stars to carry on the theme.
I have re-rooted her hair in Starlight Nylon which has been half dyed black and boil curled.
Her eyes have been re-painted 3 times!! every time I used varnish the dye would seep into the colours of the eyes, This time I have left her with no varnish.
My dad made the stand for me out of wood, he drilled a hole in the middle so I could place a magnet inside, this connects to the magnet in the hoof of the pony and stops her from falling over. I have painted the stand in black and blue with a ton of irridescent glitter, stars and crystals, it also has a cream fabric bottom so it doesn't scratch and surfaces.
I hope you all like her. She is now SOLD

She is fantastic! Man, the amount of patience and planning that must have gone into the wings alone. Beautiful color scheme, really elegant.
