Yo my pony friends! Hope you all are well. So over the winter I bought princess Serena, who came to me with that yellow head she's famous for. Of course, me being picky and stubborn, I spent the rest of that week dedicated to fixing her. I soaked her in peroxide, bleach, and sunfade, and while those did help, they didn't cure her. So one day my nephew and me were playing with blue Play Doh, I had an idea. I put the Play Doh in water and squished it all over her. I washed it off then her head was...Blue again! So this was a few months ago and she seems good. She had some pink marks I'm 90% sure came from a bridle. But other than that beautiful. So I ask you, have you ever heard of this idea? Have you used weird methods to fix up these gals? I'd love to hear them tbh

Well, I read the title and assumed the worst :surprisepony:

Sometimes, its the weirdest tricks that work! I had a Star Catcher I had gotten in a lot, poor thing was missing her whole front hoof. Some Air Dry clay and, while she’s still not perfect, she looks way better.

I did as well. I guess we're morbid minded! :D

I dyed a pony with pokeberries once. It came out beautifully dappled, and it never has faded. What other weird ways have you guys dyed your ponies?

I've never heard of that type of berry before! That's so cool that it worked. Which pony was it?

We tribal folk call them pokeberry, I think they're also known as elderberry. They have a fuchsia coloured juice, it's very pretty. I used it on a very sun faded Cotton Candy. She came out darker than I expected, with pretty dappled spots. I'll have to find her and photograph her for y'all. It wasn't the result I was looking for, but it turned out quite lovely anyway.

awesome. i love it when weird stuff work.
You basically cut the holes, push the mane and tail through them and flip the pony upside down. That way, you don't dye the flocking by accident. Also good for white ponies. I repinked my Decorator Starcatcher this way.

I dunno if this counts as weird, but I used a ziplock bag with holes cut in them when I was repinking a so soft.

Why didn’t I read this before I massacred poor Wind Whistler. I was being careless. Now I have another deflock project.

Bumping this up because I decided to fix up my baity Medley. She appears to have been burned on her leg.
I didn’t have clay at the moment so I came up with the weirdest method; Mod Podge Outdoor. Thanks to its stiff consistency, I “patched” up her mark with a thick layer of it and matched up some paint. It’s not that bad, honestly. She’s still drying :p Poor Medley was abused!

EDIT: She looks waaay better than how she used to :D Her paint, although not an exact match, makes her look much better as well!

She might need some sanding to smooth it all out once its completely dry. Medley is also awaiting a full rehair, she got stuck in the 80s with her badly crimped uneven cut!

I actually cast a new ear for a chewed-up G3 baby pony out of hot glue, since I didn't have any air dry clay on hand! I made a mold out of unbaked Sculpey clay using a pressing of another G3 baby's ear, and filled it with hot glue. Then when it was dry, I popped it out and it was perfectly shaped! I glued it to her head using hot glue. It has worked pretty well as a temporary fix, but I plan to redo it properly with air-dry clay in the future.
