The Greatest Foalsitter by celticfaery The Greatest Foalsitter by celticfaery
Twilight and Cadance were adorable in the flashbacks from the finale. I was really drawn to Cadance's younger design, so I decided to make a custom. I quickly realized that she was lonely without her little filly pal, Twilight, and I just happened to have an extra Sweetie Belle, so I had to make her, too. Cadance's head was swapped with a pegasus ponies body, and the body was painted to match. Both are sculpted with apoxie sculpt, painted with acrylic, and coated with a clear gloss finish. Cadance's cutie marks are rhinestones.

Thanks!

Well there's a couple tricks to doing the hair. Firstly, I use apoxie sculpt, which dries solid as a rock. It's a lot harder than sculpy, so you can either sculpt part of it and add on to it piece by piece as it dries. (This can take a while.) With Cadance's ponytail I sculpted the parts that sit on her head, and then I stuck a nice thick piece of wire into her mane where I wanted the ponytail to be. Once that dried, I sculpted the ponytail over top of the wire. I do the same thing for all my ponies' tails. I cut a piece of wire that is just about the size of the tail hole and then sculpt over it. It makes it nice and sturdy. :D

That's cool that you used rhinestones for Cadance's cutie mark. Reminds me of some of the previous generations' toys that had rhinestone cutie marks.

Thanks! Yeah, I agree. I've been a MLP fan since G1, so it made me smile to think of that. :)
