Blind Bag Zecora by DeeKary Blind Bag Zecora by DeeKary
Here's Zecora in her blind bag form :D. I worked on her for the blind bag contest going on at the Arena. I didn't post her until now because I was waiting for the contest to start :). She took several spare hours of work in between commissions, and I'm so in love with her that I'm keeping her as part of my private collection <3.
She started as a blind bag Twilight Sparkle, with a reposition of the head done to it as well as sculpting with Apoxie.
Here's a WIP picture if you don't believe she's a BB ;) [link]

Thanks for looking! :D hope you like her :dance: check out the rest of the entries here: [link]

I love her! I wish I had one like this instead of the Hasbro one! I haven't tried sculpting yet might end badly!

Beautiful! What tool did you use to scrape the excess plastic hair off the Twilight base?

Thanks! I used my X-Acto knife :) and then used a bit of sanding paper to remove some more of it and leave the surface even.

Thanks for the input! I'm working on a few customs that will require quite a bit of cutting and re-shaping, and I wanted to know what the best cutting tool to use would be. I didn't want to get started and hurt myself when there was an easier, safer blade to use. Thankfully, I already have some X-Acto knives and some sandpaper on hand. The only stuff I need now is the Apoxie. Know any place you can buy the stuff cheap?

Hmmm Apoxie is a bit pricy, but it's definitely worth the investment! I think I found them the cheapest through Amazon (got myself 1 lb of white there and I've done a ton of stuff with it, and there's still quite a bit left!). If you're thinking of just trying it out I would recommend starting with the 1/4 lb, but if you have a good knowledge of scupting and are going to sculpt a lot in the future I would recommend getting the 1 lb ^^.

Here's the direct link to the search results on Amazon :) [link] the price of it by itself is good, but it's the shipping what hurts the wallet LOL :XD:.

And, now that I've got my hands on some Apoxie, I can see why you and other customizers like it so much! It can be applied in thin, tiny doses, and sands smoothly without (for the most part) chipping or cracking.

But, I gotta ask: do you know any tricks to keep it from sticking to your hands so much when you're working with it? And, do you really need to wear masks and gloves when handling it?
