Fat Pegasus #14

Fat Pegasus Magnet 014 - Red Dun - Martha Bechtel - Black

Technically this gal is a little too yellow to be a proper red dun, but I had a great time playing around with the colors nonetheless!

This pegasus is painted a red dun, with brown mane, tail, and wings, black feather-stripes, wingtips, and hooves, two hind socks and a thick blaze.

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! 🙂

The pegasi are roughly 2.25 inches from nose to tail and 1.5 inches from hoof to mane. This little gal was cast using the magnet leveling jig and has a slightly raised magnet and a nice flat back.

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!

This magnet was started in September 2019 and finished in November 2020. Yet another one of the ‘I started it and then got distracted by other things’ ponies! 😅
