Fat Pegasus #13

Fat Pegasus Magnet 013 - Chestnut - Martha Bechtel - Front

It’s always fun tossing realistic coat patterns onto fantasy equines and this little gal was no exception!

She’s painted to a simple chestnut with flaxen mane and tail, banded white and black wings, and black hooves.

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 Pegasus are a resculpt of my Fat Pony mold and are hand-cast in resin from a handmade silicone mold of my own sculpture. 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™‚

The pegasi are roughly 2.25 inches from nose to tail and 1.5 inches from hoof to mane. This little gal was one of the earlier casts (although she was painted much later) and was cast without using the magnet leveling jig. She has a slightly sunken magnet and a little less paper-holding power than her siblings.

Fat Pegasus magnets come in a small plastic bag with a handmade tag, but you can add an optional handmade cardstock gift box. They make a cute little gift or stocking stuffer for a horse-crazy human!

Medium: Liquitex White Gesso, Americana Acrylics (DA063 Burnt Sienna, DA163 Honey Brown), and Apple Barrel Acrylics (20504 Black, 20503 White).
