Rarity does the Make-Up by OtakuSquirrel Rarity does the Make-Up by OtakuSquirrel
Stop being impressed! The secret to this is to use a VERY small paintbrush. Here's Rarity holding the paintbrush and applying Scratch's make-up. The wigs aren't ready yet-- I've been rather lazy with those and haven't done anything with them yet.

If anyone is curious, I bought this paintbrush at my local hardware store. For less than two dollars... =D

Best I can really suggest is taking a digital photo and doing a mirror image of it in a drawing program-- so you can see what it is that you're aiming for. Past that, I don't attempt to recreate factory applied cutie-marks because I'm not *that* good at painting them yet.

what do you use to make the wigs and how do you remove the hair of the pony?

I sculpt the hair with sculpey, then make silicone molds and cast the copies in polyurethane resin.

I cut the hair off with an x-acto knife. Nothing fancy.

simple enough..
do you reccomend using the sculptey as the hair if the creator would want to?
and do you like use a gloss to make the hair look "plastic"

There's no problem with using sculpey as the hair-- it's just a lot more fragile. So you have to be a lot more careful with it.
My manes and tails technically are plastic... (polyurethane resin = plastic) but yeah, using a gloss coat helps. =)

I dab some acetone onto a paper towel and just give it a quick wipe. It usually removes everything, but occasionally I have to give it a second go.
