    Introducing, you guessed it, TAK! I got a little bored, my daughter wanted to experiment, she found some ratty old ponies and fakies in a box saved for her art, and Presto! TAK, the air celestial pony is born. My camera makes her look blue, but I promise, she's very much purple. I know now that I should have made her tail thicker. Please don't be too harsh, but please, give input.

    Evelyn is working on some earrings to match her tail dangle. I'll post more pictures tomorrow since we need to pick up some o rings first. :)

    Thank you! :) it took an hour to get her mane in.... I wonder if a rehairing tool is easier. I just used a yarn needle. Evelyn did great with the beads for the tail. ;)

    Wow. I'm way too chicken to reroot. The colors and swirls look great.

    Me, too!

    Here's round two. She doesn't have a name. I did the yarn again. So much faster on a fakie! I helped with the vines and swirls. Otherwise, Evelyn did all the painting and picked everything herself. She's not finished yet either, as Evelyn is working on some surprise jewelry and possibly gems for the eyes. Best of all? She glows in the dark!

    She did great on the jewelry! I love both of these ladies and their fun, crazy designs!

    I made my own rebooting tool from a x-acto knife handle and a small tapestry needle with the eye cut at an angle in place of the blade. Cheap, easy to replace, and so far has made repairing endeavors go quite quickly! Your sewing method has beautiful end results though, love their hair!

    I think they look lovely tak and I like their colors and design. :) If you would love a tip you may try using makeup sponges they help get a even coat of paint on the pony and you can add layers. (which I need to do more of.)
