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! 🙂
