Printables are available for personal, non-commercial use only please! They are for fun – I do not make any money from these and will remove them if necessary or requested. 🙂
Last August I started putting together labels for fictional brands of horse shampoo/fly spray/etc. I got distracted and misplaced the file on my pc. I did end up finding it after panicking for a bit – serves me right for saving model horse files outside of the “Model Horse” master folder of chaos.
Anyway, since it’s Spring (nearly Summer!) I figured now would be a good time to get these pieces finished up.
I made a PDF file of the labels… some are entirely made up by me while others are obvious imitations of real brands.
I printed these up on plain computer paper – nothing fancy- then went over them with Triple Thick Gloss to give them some shine. I like this gloss for paper printables as it doesn’t smear the ink like some others do.
The bottles themselves I sculpted from polymer clay. Despite my best efforts some still came out a bit lopsided argh!
But after being painted, labelled and glossed, they seemed to turn out all right.
Also included is a bunch of labels for “Unicorn Dust” which is hoof glitter or whatever glitter you’d like it to be. Why am I so attracted to glitter on horses WHYYYY…
I made these from cut pieces of wooden dowels, which I covered with glitter and clear packing tape.
The mini towels I cut from baby washcloths I found at the dollar store. These things are cheap and thin, which makes them great for minis. The pink piece is a scrap of suede.
I also wanted to make some grooming mitts, so I started by tracing around a Yvonne doll’s hand…
And used that as a template to cut mitts out of various materials. First attempt was a rubber glove. Mine has this textured bit on the ends, so I figured I’d use that for one side of a mitt.
It did not want to be turned inside out but I got it to cooperate eventually:
I also made one from this textured fabric I had on hand… it was from a cheap mini tote bag of sorts… I’m thinking it was from a party supply shop or dollar store? Anyway it behaved a lot better than the rubber glove did:
oven grooming mitts!
With some paint:
I also made one from the baby washcloths, and I think this is my favorite.
Hope you enjoy! 🙂

You are just awesome.
Fabulous stuff! Where did you find the bucket?
The bucket is a repainted medicine cup 🙂
Your patience must be endless. Great job!
Ahhh, I’m definitely going to be printing these out for my Julips, thank you so much! I’ve been meaning to design my own products for a while so this may just give me that extra shot of inspiration I need to actually get round to it at last!
I love all the ideas you have and that you share on how to make them thanks for all your hard work:)
How did you stick the labels on to the bottles? Also do you bake the polymer clay or keep it like it is?
Awesome stuff! The baby washcloths are a great idea!
Where do I download them?
Just found it, nevermind!
Did you freehand sculpt these? I am having a hard time :((
Yes, but I had trouble with keeping them even. If I were to do it again, I would start with pieces cut from a wood dowel and add beads for details.
Bonjour § ce que vous faite c’est super ** par contre je ne trouve pas le dossier pour les imprimer
It’s in the post. 🙂 I’ve updated it to make it more clear.

That’s perfectly fine! 🙂
Would you mind if I used these for Breyer Photo Shows?
Whoops I said it twice by accident! You have inspired me to make my own blog, but I have no clue where to start! And thank you.
By the way I used a washcloth and cut it to make a baby for the baby washcloth! 🙂
