Grand Galloping Gala Rarity

The toy I used is a 3" brushable Rarity: www.hasbro.com/common/producti...
This took me about a week to make. Her dress & accessories are made from polymer clay, acrylic paint and beads.

At the Gala, all the royals
They will meet fair Rarity
They will see I'm just as regal at the Gala! (at the Gala)
I will find him, my Prince Charming,
And how gallant he will be,
He will treat me like a lady, tonight at the Gala!

Wow! The dress is incredible, the hair is scary-accurate, and a bicone for her earring just tops it all off~

I take commissions :)
Its $40 for a general pony (derpy, Octavia, an OC etc). At the moment Im not selling, and almost everything you see in my gallery is for my personal collection.

I also dont commission gala ponies yet.

Love it, love it... Simply awesome.

I want to do the same sort of modification to the "wave 4" blind bag Fluttershy that I have, so I've been looking for suggestions on what material & process to use. Does the polymer clay set and harden over time without heating? i.e. to a point where it could be painted on?

What I want to do is "fix" her mane and tail, since they were cheap and made Flutter just a 100% recolor of the Rainbow Dash mold. :(
After molding her hair, I'd then want to paint it the proper color, similar to what I did with the AJ & Rarity figures at [link]

So any tips you could give me on where to find the clay you used, as well as any tips on molding it and whether it sets without heating, that'd be <3

polymer clay has to be baked in the oven at 130 (i think) degrees Celsius for 15 minutes for every 6millimetres thick it is.

when I use polymer clay on the 3 inch brushable ponies, i lower the temperature and cook them for longer, because the plastic becomes very soft.
If i were you, i would do some googling about whether the blind bags are safe to be baked in the oven.

As I live in Australia, I get my Sculpey Polymer clay from Spotlight. Because you live in America, i wouldnt know where you could look. But polymer clay can be painted after it's baked.

You can buy air dry clay, but again, i wouldnt know where you could look. Try some art & craft stores. Even places like Target (im assuming America Target is like Australia Target) and places like that.

with moulding, things like chopsticks, exacto knives/stanley knives, toothpicks and other small objects are good for shaping clay. Also rolling pins and a big flat surface (like a tupperware lid) for flattening the clay out.

Beautiful! You used polymer clay? Did you bake it on the pony with the hair?

Thank you!

and yes to both questions :D Although i didnt follow the instructions on the sculpey packet for baking. I turned the over down to 100 degrees celcius, and baked her for twice as long.

Wow! I'm surprised! That's good to know. Usually a straight iron can ruin a pony's hair, and I wanted to try customizing some brushables. Great restyling on the hair, too!

i think most straight irons get hotter than 100 C
but the oven is like a heat in the air, as opposed to a hot object pressing and squeezing the hair. so that probably why it doesnt go funny shaped/frizzled.

you do, however have to be careful about touching the pony when taking it out of the oven cause any pressure could warp the plastic

thanks :)

yeah i know. I was going to make them out of transparent sculpey, but it looked funny, so i used glue and blue paint and painted a thin layer of that on her hooves just so she had something resembleing them
