Whimsy is the middle name of most Fat Pony Magnets and this gal is no exception!
Sporting a coat of bright yellow with a red-orange mane and tail, she’s wearing a pop of dots instead of a more traditional horse pattern. While they might not be proper polka dots, she’s still ready to dance the night away on your fridge or office magnetic whiteboard!
She is coated with several layers of gloss sealer and can be wiped clean 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! 🙂
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 using the magnet leveling jig. She has a slightly raised magnet and her back is pretty much flat, needing only a slight round of carving to clean up his edges.
