Fat Pony Magnet #017 - Faux Turquoise - Front
Fat Pony Magnet #17

She might not hail from Battle Mountain proper, but this little fat pony magnet is a hop, skip, and a buck from her true turquoise cousins!

If your kitchen or office could use a little shine, this dashing gal is sure to bring a smile to your face as she gallops across the metal plains. She’s spotting a faux spiderweb of gold on a rich turquoise background and while not as realistic a pattern as some of the other faux stone Fat Ponies, she’s certainly got her heart in the right place!

Fat Pony Magnet #017 - Faux Turquoise - Grocery List

She has several layers of gloss coating and will stand up to water splashes and wiping with a damp cloth… but she probably shouldn’t go for a swim!

The Fat Ponies are hand-cast in resin from a handmade silicone mold of my own sculpture and thus no two will be exactly alike. I’m still learning how to make molds and how to resin cast, so things aren’t perfect (yet!) and I’ve tried to show off any flaws in the photos.

The magnets used are small round ceramic magnets and they are strong enough to hold up paper on a swinging door, but not cardstock. If you would like a stronger neodymium magnet instead, convo me for a custom pony! ๐Ÿ™‚

Fat Pony Magnet #017 - Faux Turquoise - Back

Ponies are roughly 2.25 inches from nose to tail and 1.5 inches from hoof to mane. This little gal was cast from the first generation OOMOO molds, but was created before I came up with my magnet leveling jig so her magnet is slightly raised and the rest of the back slopes away from it. She’s one of the unfortunate ponies who’s back is a bit messy, but much like cross-stitch, the side you can’t see doesn’t count! Right? ๐Ÿ˜‰
