Shamrockstar (Custom Breyer Mini Whinnie Romping Foal)

Shamrockstar - Custom Breyer Mini Whinnie Romping Foal - Martha Bechtel - Left

No bigger than a penny, this little gal sports one heck of an attitude– a perfect match for one of the names dreamed up in my Facebook group! (After a couple hundred horses, I sometimes get stuck on naming these little guys. ๐Ÿ˜…)

Shamrockstar is a custom Breyer Mini Whinnies Romping Foal painted to a blue-green tovero with black eyes.

She started out with a basecoat of blue and then had green and blue pastels layered over that. The flash does pick up a little more of the contrast than you can see normally, but the pictures are pretty good for someone so small!

She has pinking in the white markings, but only has solid black eyes and solid-colored hooves (my ability to squint only lasts so long). Sham has a glossy finish and has had her seams and Breyer logo removed.

Please keep in mind that these photos are MUCH larger than life-sized, so you will see some tiny defects that I am not physically able to remove. Still, I think she turned out pretty awesome for a penny-sized horse!

Sham was started in February 2013 and finished up in April. She sold in April 2016.

Medium: Liquitex White Gesso, Liquitex Artist Color Acrylics (Gesso, Mars Black, Light Portrait Pink), FolkArt (720 Cobalt Blue), and Sargent Art Chalk Pastels
