Look, down on the ground! It’s a cloud! It’s a fog! No, it’s… a bit of equine fluff looking for a magnet-friendly surface to call home!
This happy Fat Pony (or low-lying weather phenomenon) is a light dappled-gray with four white socks and a big white blaze. She’s a bit of a scrumble of colors, made from the same color pallet as Rumtumtugger but a little less realistic in outcome.
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 second generation OOMOO molds using the magnet leveling jig. Thus she has a slightly raised magnet and her back is pretty flat, needing only a quick round of sanding and carving to clean her up.
Fat Ponies 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! ?
