Two years ago I repainted a couple HO/1:87 scale horses to look like OF Breyers:

Today I got two more of them painted, made to look like Misty and Stormy of Chincoteague:

My camera picked up every speck, bump and microscopic spot I missed, BUT they’re super tiny, and I wasn’t aiming for a “lsq” paint job or anything. >_>

I am fascinated with miniatures and even more so with miniatures of miniatures!

To give an idea of size, here is Breyer’s Misty with her micro counterpart:

And Stormy with hers:

(the book can be found in this post!)

So… does the model Misty approve of her model?

Good plastic ponies deserve treats every now and then, right?

Here’s a new set of printables for you today!

There are three flavors…

I printed mine on regular computer paper and secured them with a glue stick. I used the leftover paper to stuff the bags, then added a gloss coating.
My favorite gloss I use for printables is this one:

It doesn’t smear the ink like thinner glosses do, and really brightens up the color.

I really wanted to make some miniature horse treats to go with them, but didn’t want to deal with polymer clay, so I came up with a different solution.

I’m using a thin, sticky-backed piece of cork I found with the scrapbook paper in Hobby Lobby. I used this to make a miniature bulletin board and thought it might pass as treats too.

First I cut a couple strips, peeled off the backing and stuck them together, to give it a little more thickness. I sketched out a few treats then cut them out.

Instant heart cookies!

I hope you (and your ponies!) enjoy!
