Copperfox Challenge Day 6: Find a new artist/sculptor/tackmaker that you don’t already know about (#CDCday5)
Today’s challenge is about finding something new. Trot onto the Internet and find the work of a new artist, sculptor, tack maker, hobbyist- anyone within the model horse hobby that you don’t know about… yet!
This challenge comes on the perfect day! I just discovered, through a friend on FB that some of my favorite Breyer models were in fact sculpted by Susan Carlton Sifton. I just friended her on Facebook, and now I look forward to seeing more of her work with Breyer 🙂
Here are a few photos of my own models based on Sue’s sculpts:
Thank you Kay Koeller!
Day 3: Be a Model Horse (#CDCday3)
Imagine yourself as a model horse. What colour would you be? What mould would you be created on? What scale?
I really like the traditional sized Breyer Bluegrass Bandit.. and of course a beautiful subtle dappled palomino with lovely metallic highlights and lots ‘o “chrome” would be my obvious choice of coloring. Below are photos that show the mold (but not the color), and the color (but on a different mold). Combine the two and you know what I’d look like as a horse 🙂
In This Color:
Or Maybe This One:
But then I like this mold too… Oh decisions decisions!!
