It's a best kept secret for easier pintos, appaloosas and planning white markings...the white charcoal pencil. Softer than a regular pencil, this pencil is especially great because it's easy to remove. Learn how I apply it and the fine detail you can get with it in this short and sweet video.
I've decided to start a series of videos with super short tips for customizing. Since they are running from May to June, this is season one! Which also means that if the views and comments are good, you can expect season two in the late summer/early fall. So if you like them, check it out, comment, and subscribe to my YouTube channel if you want to see season two.
My followers on Instagram requested this video and now it is finally here! How to paint eyes, hooves and chestnuts on a model horse custom, with special emphasis on the Breyer Stablemates scale.
In this tutorial I show you how to convert the new Breyer Stablemates Unicorn Paint And Play sets into normal horses, with tips on how to remove the horns and prep your horses for paint.
Craftsmanship is everything, not only for a winning model horse but for an amazing work of art in your collection. That is an especially big deal if you bought an expensive artist resin. In this video I’ll teach you everything from sanding to priming for that perfect surface before painting your artist resin.
An overview of my NaMoPaiMo horse and MEPSA donation mare, with glimpses into the drastic customizing process, as well as a side-by-side with the original Breyer Lady Phase so you can see how far she came.

Apoxie Sculpt and other brands of two-part epoxy clay is the heart and soul of model horse customizing and a great air-dry clay. For this post, I'm featuring a great tutorial video by Darynn Bednarczyk of DeeJayBe model horse customs to get you started in all things apoxie. Be sure to visit the video on YouTube and click on the description since she has a TON of great resources and tools listed there.
The second video in the tutorial series is my own personal recipe for painting bays, complete with application steps. Just in time for NaMoPaiMo 2019!
A couple weeks ago, I asked my Instagram followers what sort of tutorials they would like to see from me. Video tutorials won the majority for preferred format, so I figured it was time to actually do something with that channel I set up a while ago. Many people wanted to see sculpting and painting tutorials, so I'm taking advantage of a long Christmas stay-cation to record some of those videos, starting with how I sculpt ears. That video is live now.
