Experiment in scenting
I thought I'd try my hand at scenting a pony. I know other threads have suggested the possibily of stuffing cloves and such in to their bodies. But I wanted to try something that would infuse into the ponies plastic itself.
I took scents used to make your own scented soap that I bought from Michaels craft store, a sandalwood scent. Took one of my DG fakies, which by themselves, have a nasty smell. Got a small pot of water boiling, the sandalwood scent, about 30 drops. Just like you would for dying, I pulled the ponies head off and boiled both body and head in the scented water, alternatly, for about 30 minutes.
Popped the ponies head back on, and gave her a sniff. The nasty plasticy smell is gone, and she now has a nice sandalwood scent. Not REALLY strong, but just enough, and she's starting to smell better as she dries and cools off. I think if I want a stronger scent, boil her longer and add more scent to the boiling water.
But I think I have a way now to scent a pony ^____^.
( EDIT )
I ended up using the pony for a unicorn custom, complete with apoxy hair and elicorn. Then did a full body repaint. At first, the scent of the apoxy while it was still drying was VERY over powering to the point that it was kicking one of my migraines in. But after letting it sit over night, and now just sitting down to watch Chronicles of Narnia and continue painting the pony, the scent of the apoxy is now gone, and I can smell the sandal wood through the paint.
I figure, the longer you let the pony boil in the water with the soap scent and the more scent you add as the water evaporates, the stronger the scent to the pony.
The soap scents at Michaels arts and crafts are pretty cheap.
The sandalwood actually smells like a light woodsy mens cologne, but it's nice ^_^. (/EDIT )
