Custom Breyer Horse- King

Meet King! Let me just tell you, I had my work cut out for me on this one. I know his coat pattern looks simple, but that wasn't the issue. It was his mane. King's one of those quirky horses that has mane on both sides. Well this breyer model had the majority of the mane on the wrong side. So I had to use my hand dandy dremel tool to take off most of the mane. I then used modeling expoxy to smooth it out, then sand, and prime and sand and prime and sand....and prime, until it was smooth and matched with his body. I then took epoxy and recreated his mane on the correct side.
What do you think?
These kinds of small details are why I have a job doing custom models. Not to mention, king has a "wild eye". His right eye has the whites showing, where his left eye doesn't. :-)
If you want your own custom, please contact me!
