Scootaloo Progress by OtakuSquirrel Scootaloo Progress by OtakuSquirrel
And here's a random shot of Rainbow Dash with a piece of half-cooked chicken. Errrr.... I mean Scootaloo.

I also started Apple Bloom's bow-- but it's not really worthy of a picture right now as it doesn't stick to her hair due to there being no magnet in it.

I use Original Sculpey to do my sculpting.

I do my sculpting with Original Sculpey and then cast copies in polyurethane resin. In this particular picture, Dash is sporting a resin mane and tail, and Scoots is wearing her sculpey prototypes.

rough or not..id buy her as she is...but ive got a minor request....any chance of some "improved" wings...another one of those shots of hasbro screwing up

Well... while her wings are a smidge tiny to be show accurate... most people really like the little tiny wings on her figure, myself included.
But more realistically, changing out her wings is a lot more difficult that changing out the manes and tails. So I don't see a new set of wings as being something many people would be wanting to buy-- and investing the time and materials into it with no potential return just doesn't make sense.

Thanks! She's still pretty rough, but the shape is done, now it's just a lot of the detail work. =)

Ummm... actually, it's the boring part. =P Well, it's all fun-- but creating that first bit and shaping it into something that looks right is the fun part... smoothing everything out and filling the tiny holes and then sanding and sanding and sanding gets a bit tedious...

I like to rake leaves when I need to relax... I should find this stuff the same, but I get a bit OCD about getting everything perfect... so it just doesn't always work.

It's good to know I'm not the only one. At least I've figured out when to stop and leave well-enough alone-- it helps to know that the resin casts, while good, are a lot easier and more durable to clean up and do those final touches on in many cases...

My plan is to eventually have a discounted set that'll include the CMC and Cheerilee-- to mirror the School Pals set. Of course, this wont be available until I actually finish all of them. =P

I still need to pick up the new CMC set at Target, went there in the afternoon yesterday only to find out they were all sold out. :/

The Targets in my area have restocked a couple times. So hopefully you'll be able to find one before I actually finish these sculpts.

Awww, Scoots! ^_^ The CMC are upgrades I want to get with each order for sure. ^_^ BTW, the next wave of McDonalds Ponies are coming and they are in the same style as the last release meaning if you made upgrade tails for the first release they would probably fit on the next set as well. ^_^

I'll have to see about maybe getting some. I don't usually eat McD's though... but some of my friends live on it, so maybe I can convince them to pick up the toys for me. =)

Hope they're women or guys with no shame...I fall in the latter group myself XD The new figures look really nice too so I'm going to have to get the main six characters at least XD Great new poses for Rainbow, Fluttershy and Rarity.
