Partly Cloudy

Partly Cloudy is a Breyer Mini Whinnie Jog Trot Quarter Horse Mare painted a high gloss finish, with plain black eyes, and a shaded blue-bay coat with lots of chrome. Her seams and logo have been removed, but her hooves and ears have not been carved.

She’s one of the steadier Mini Whinnie models and doesn’t need any help staying upright (which is a nice change).

This little gal is a laid-back soul, having wandered my body box for almost a decade looking for a new paint job. After cleaning up some minor scrapes she’s better than new and ready to find new pastures to roam!

She should be a solid Photo Show Quality, but I’m not sure about Live Show. Even with all the chrome most of the Fantasy horses tend to be a bit more on the wild side.

The Jog Trot mold is roughly 2.25 inches long, 1.25 inches high, and a half-inch wide. Breyer claims they’re all 1:64 scale, but Mini Whinnies molds tend to vary a lot in relative size.

I’m not sure when I started painting her, the earliest photo I can find is from a body box overview in March 2012, but she was finished in June 2012.

Medium: Gesso, Liquitex Artist Color Acrylics (Gesso, Mars Black, Light Blue Violet, Yellow Oxide, Ultramarine Blue), FolkArt (720 Cobalt Blue)

      Thanks! 😀

      That’s the thing I love best about painting the teeny tiny horses– it takes a lot less time to try out new color and pattern ideas. ^_^
