I know, I know, I’ve broken my musical naming theme with this little fella, but when I tried to give him a nice Cantata or Requiem he objected. Some horses aren’t meant for fancy names, I suppose!

This handsome fella had been sitting on my workbench shelf for quite some time, existing in an amusing one-side-only-pasteled version of his current glory. I finally took pity and started finishing him off—only to have his very first coat of sealer go horribly horribly wrong. *sighs*

After replacing the can, I was able to sort him out– but he’s still showing his battle scars. The bumps are slightly harder to see with the matte finish, but there are very small droplets all over him where the first sealer went wrong.

Thankfully the additional coats of sealer between that coat and the last helped to smooth them out. As you can see in the photos his coat is still a little rough, but he should be fine for photo showing and makes a quite handsome shelf piece! 🙂
