show that you'd love to have in toy form!
Well, at least the list goes on and on for us...
starting with Daring Do...and enters the realm of our own custom ponies!
Here's a fabulous way to create your very own custom pony!
It's a super fun craft...and a super fun toy!
Step 1: Meet Tropical Mist
And yes, in her previous life, she was a haircut bait Sunny Days.
(Never fear, Daring Do is on her way!)
let's just get onto the basic process...shall we?
Step 2: Let's get customizing!
Find a pony at a yard sale or thrift store that the little girl has cut the hair...
Or just buy a $5 My Little Pony at the store.
We tested our plan on our duplicate Sunny Days.
As the mom, sometimes I get sick of all that tangled up hair...snarls and knots!
I often wished that the hair was plastic too!
Step 3: Haircut time
Now you want to leave the tufts of hair still there,
because the clay will adhere better.
Step 4: Bake Hard Clay time.
Ours was white. If you find the color of clay that you want the finished hair to be...I would
do things in a different order. (Paint pony. Then sculpt hair. Then bake)
Step 5: Sculpt the Mane and Tail!
dreadlock, worm, snake like tendrils, with sweeping bangs.
I could have taken more time...but like I said, she was our test pony.
I will next time.
Once you do the mane, you are ready for the tail.
I used an x-acto knife to rough up the area around her pony tail.
This gives the clay something to adhere to. Although it's terribly hard to see in the photo.
You could also use some sand paper. (no rear end comments please!)
