I am dying to re-do his tail now I have used Laura's method, but I shall resist, and save my itchy fingers for the casting proof :)
On a side note ...I cannot believe how much static dust/fluff sticks to a black horse when you are photographing them!
Dang it there is a 'blob' just below his offside hip, wondering now if I can spot fix him, or if I shall have to strip him completely. Kicking myself I did not notice it sooner, can you see it?

Today he will get his mane and genitalia, some more sanding and hopefully a coat of primer.

After passing the wire through his, err, rear end and up through his neck to his ears, I Bicarbed and Superglued it into place, then taped over it. A couple of coats of glue/Bicarb mix over the tape and we were ready to tango :D.
Almost there ...
Of course me being me, with the help of fellow Blabbers , I realised his neck was too long, no surprises there, lol. So once again, it will be "Off with his Head!"
Other then being cross at myself for not double measuring his neck before getting caught up in muscles, I am really chuffed with how he is turning out, and super dooper chuffed with his tail. And it was easy peasy, onwards and upwards!
Thank you so much Laura!

I have been painting an AP copy of Jack for myself, a portrait of my own Welsh stallion. I have been happy with the paint job, but trying to take photos of him has been driving me spare, he looks great in real life, but dreadful in his photos:(
Why is this pony so gosh darn hard to photograph!
That was when I had my light bulb moment. His neck is too long, and now I have discovered his problem, it is soooo clear to me, I am amazed I have not seen it sooner!
This is Jack with a little neck lipo ...
Up close of his ticking. Lots more to go :)
