Back in the studio!

After several trips back to back we are finally home with no immediate plans to go anywhere. I love the feeling of no plans as it lets me mentally relax enough to get back into 'studio mode' which means work will continue on the nearly completed Marwari sculpture. I am hoping to begin selling him in the next few weeks, so those with outstanding orders on other resins may want to consider paying them off so your order won't get caught with the typical casting backlog that happens when we release a new horse. Here is how he looks today with red epoxy hair and a back lengthening surgery (for some reason the molding process shortened his back):

This shows how his tail will be positioned:

There is a lot of interest in this new guy since he is large stablemate scale, will be my last stablemate scale offering at the $75.00 price point, and Marwaris come in a large variety of horse colors. Here are a few to whet your appetite (photos courtesy of Manu Sharma Photography):

Sabino pinto:


Liver chestnut:

I have looked through thousands of photos and never saw an Appaloosa, roan, or dun. There are lots of bays, blacks, and grays with some chestnuts, buckskins, and palominos and the double dilutes. All the pinto patterns exist. 
I hope to have him ready in the next two weeks. The current shipping list can be seen here, as always. Keep in mind that there is usually a two month backlog after a new release.
