Early this year Breyer approached me about creating the prototype for their 2020 Holiday Horse costume. I’ve always loved the fancy costumes on the holiday horses, so I was very excited to work on this project.

I do want to stress that the design and theme of the costume was put together by the creative team at Breyer, not me! My task was to create a 3D version of their design. I was granted some artistic freedom, but I tried to keep it as close to their design and instruction as I could.

Thank you Breyer for letting me play a part in this. ❤️ I am so excited to see the horse and costume together, and am thrilled at the positive response he’s been getting from collectors!

Happy Halloween!

This weekend I’ve been making miniatures. With Halloween right around the corner, I wanted to make something Halloween-ish, and ended up with Sally’s potion jars and a couple of old books. (plus a bonus stool!)

The jars come from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, in case you were wondering!

These started out as beads, buttons and tiny pieces of wood. The “Worm’s Wort” bottle isn’t movie accurate, but I really like the shape so it doesn’t bother me too much.

Caught the rare moment when sunlight hits the desk!!

I gave them all coats of black paint, then dry brushed them with silver. The Deadly Nightshade jar got a wire fastening added to it, and while it’s a little bulky and was super fiddly to make, I’m happy I decided to make it. (I can’t say I want to do that again though, haha) The labels I found online and resized in Photoshop.

The books were made from paper and scraps of leather I’ve held on to forever.

I tried to age them by sanding, scuffing and blotching on watered down paint.

It’s been such a nice change of pace to work on minis again… I’ve missed it.
