These past couple months have been crazy as I try to crank out a bunch of model horse tutorials before my upcoming summer projects hit me (looking at you, MEPSA champ book). But that's not the only thing I've been working on.
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.
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.

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.

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.
