Horsey by FamiliarOddlings Horsey by FamiliarOddlings
Original concept drawing:

Needle-felted, no armature for maximum huggabilty, paper clay face and hooves, and yarn for mane and tail. He's about 6 in. tall while seated and his face is about 2 in. in diameter.

I made this for the wonderful =ShePaintsWithBlood and he now resides with her.

This is my pal right here! I just love him to death. He is so huggable and pleasant. So that is what the hooves and face are made of, I was wondering...I am sure I have seen you use that stuff before but I had forgotten. Anyways I just love everything about him from the fact that he is yellow (one of my very favourite colours) to his amazing unique face and square nose, the fun mane and tail (which actually is made from the same stuff a scarf of mine is made of!) And his very well sewn body. I really like his ears a lot too. He is so awesome! I forgot to ask, does he have a name?:blackrose:

:D Yes, I use paper clay all the time. It's like a very fine premixed papier mache the consistency of clay. It comes out of the bag already slightly moist. I love it. :) His face was painted with watercolors and pastels then sealed with a top coat. The hooves were painted with acrylic and a high gloss varnish. Oh, his headband thing was acrylic too with a pen for the outline. I was so thrilled when I found out you like yellow! I knew then that he had to be more yellow than the drawing, which I felt from the beginning should've been more yellow actually. Haha! That yarn is great for all kinds of projects. I wish I had a scarf made of it.

I'm so happy you like him so much! :hug:

Um, no, he doesn't really have a name. I just called him "the horse" or "horse-man" haha. You should name him, you're good at names. :)

ha, yes and no...Most of the times I want to keep them, but other times I have worked so long and hard that I am happy to have him or her out of my sight. But I do miss them all!

Let me know when you have them for sale and I will send out the word for you!
