Aether Naut: TPM Mascot by CadmiumCrab Aether Naut: TPM Mascot by CadmiumCrab
This piece is being donated to the Traveling Pony Museum and will be making its debut at Big Apple Ponycon. As the title says, its the TPM mascot, Aether Naut. Inky had requested something with the balloon design, but I couldn't think of a way to actually make the balloon without the piece being gigantic, so I decided incorporate it into the base. I also gave her a compass to go with the navigation/steampunk theme.

Base measures 6 1/2 inches long, pony measures 6 inches tall. She's made of super sculpey and sculpey firm over a wire and foil armature, painted with Liquitex acrylics, and sprayed with matte sealer.

Quite a lot of equipment for a Pony. My first thougt was this must be Cloud chaser or Flitter.
Why goes my thinking now around the idea how to make this compass functional?

There are no words for how amazing this is!

I would have never thought to make the airship as the base but it's perfect!

Thank you! I wanted to create a nice showpiece for the TPM. I was actually worried the tail was too big, but all put together it works ok.
