Big Macintosh Custom by CadmiumCrab Big Macintosh Custom by CadmiumCrab
I've been meaning to do some work on customizing some of the official Hasbro toys, and here's my first try, which I think looks pretty good.

I used super sculpey to mold the face and add some bulk to the back. Then I used sculpey 3 to do the hair and yoke. He's painted with acrylics and will be sealed with matte sculpey glaze.

I went with Big Macintosh because I wanted to try altering the face shape, not just a simple repaint or hair molding. I'm going to try making a bunch more in this style and having them available at our con tables.

Did you mold it from scratch or craft the head and put in on a shining armor body?

It's a standard earth pony toy with a modified head and body.

Wow, nice job! You used basically the same kinds of methods I did to make him. Tell me, when you made his hair, was it already orange or did you paint it? Also, did you have to bake the hair with him after the red paint was on him if that is safe?

Thanks! I used orange sculpey and I did two bakes. The first was the face and flank mod with super sculpey, then I used the colored sculpey to make the hair and yoke and baked again. It seemed to work well. Its the first time I've customized one of the official toy ponies, so I'm experimenting with some different things.

So it's safe to bake a pony that's been painted with acrylics?

I'm not totally sure. I've baked polymer clay sculptures that have been painted with no ill effect. Big Mac got a crackle texture at some point in time, though I'm not sure if that's due to the baking or that I covered the pony with a sculpey matte glaze afterward (I was really worried about the yellow on the hooves chipping).

I'm going to try again, but not use the glaze stuff.
