Model Horse Gallery
I first learned about customizing model horses in 1988, and a poor Breyer stock horse foal became my first victim. I've tried many mediums over the years, from oils to acrylics, then airbrushing, and now a mixture of pastels and paint with a few Prismacolor pencils thrown in. In my journey, I have gone from Traditional scale models (about 1o inches tall) to minis (about 3 inches tall). Although I admire resins and the talented artists who sculpt them, I prefer customs. I like to cut, heat, bend, putty and sand my models from out-of-the-box ordinary to a one-of-a-kind creation.
