Leather Horses Preview


These are 2 of my horses that will be available  on the upcoming Philadelphia Miniaturia Show in November 2012.
These horses were hand sculpted over a strong twisted copper wire and aluminum armature , using polymer clay and apoxie sculpt  in their legs to assure strength and stability.
The unicorn Pegasus has a gorgeous white leather coat  and the red brownish horse is two tone.
They were made differently and the end results shows. The dark horse had a different finish , having  the shine and leather effect. the white horse has a soft suede look.
They both are massive horses although still in a 1:12 scale so they are quit small.

I have a saddle professionally made for the dark horse and it will be available for purchase at my table as well.

When I get close to the show , I will show more pictures and hopefully more horses. I am dying to try a black one next.
Thank you so much for your comments and visits, you are so very kind to me!*grin*
Have a blessed day!*smiles*

Hi Tita! This pegasus-horse is stunning, a real beauty! The brown horse too of course.
