Fat Pony #130

Fat Pony Magnet 130 - Flaxen Blue - Martha Bechtel - Front Black

Like your favorite pair of old jeans, this little lady brings a dash of comfortable reliability to whatever magnetic surface she lands on!

She’s a solid blue with flaxen mane and tail and matching hooves. She’s got no chrome, but a lot of shine thanks to the high gloss finish.

The blue is a bit hard to capture correctly (sometimes it comes out much too blue), so I’ve taken a bunch of photos to try and capture the range. The ones on the black background seem to be truest to real-life (on my monitor).

I started her in August 2020 on a whim, because I was having a bad day and wanted something simple to cheer me up. The two-toned paint job was easy but sealing her up took a bit because of the humidity, so I finished her up in September.

She was cast from the first generation of OOMOO molds, but using the magnet leveling jig. So she has a slightly raised magnet, but her back isn’t as flat as her later cousins.

Medium: Liquitex Gesso, CraftSmart Acrylics (Denim, Sailing Sky), and Apple Barrel Acrylics (20504 Black).
