Nobody’s Fool

Nobody's Fool

Make: Breyer
Scale: Stablemate
Mold: Trotting Foal (G2)
Color: Bay
Gallery: Bay
Medium: Acrylics and Pastels
Status: Painted 200? and Sold 200?

Nobody is a simple resculpt, with some added feathering and smidge of epoxy added to his face to change the profile. He was created as part of a custom order– yet another unnamed foal that got a moniker post-sale (I just got bored of all the ‘Unnamed’ showing up in the galleries).

Other than that, there isn’t much to say about this little guy. He was one of my later customs, as you can tell by the backgrounds and the use of pastels, but otherwise was pretty standard at this point. I did a lot of light draft resculpts and I even have another two foals in the same mold with the same changes waiting on the workbench.

This time around the base is made from epoxy rather than super sculpy and he can’t be removed. The base was painted a dark brown and then covered with train grass, which is pretty much part for the course.

Let it not be said that customizing is good at avoiding ruts… *sighs*
