Brushable Queen Chrysalis by DeeKary Brushable Queen Chrysalis by DeeKary
At last she's done!! I was able to give it a shot at making a Queen Chrysalis custom!!! :D.

She's done with a plastic-haired Celestia body with a lot of substraction happening to shape mainly the legs (which have no added clay on them, they're all made with the original plastic).
The head and body have sculpted parts with Apoxie, and the wings are made of acrylic glass cut to the shape of the wings and painted with transparent iridescent glass paint :).
The crown is made of gunmetal beading headpins with 4mm beads glued on top.
Her mane and tail were rehaired with a mix of Dollyhair's Atomic Turquoise and Pacific Ocean.
She's been completely painted with acrylics and sealed with Testor's dullcote and Liquitex gloss varnish on the eyes.

She took A LOT of hours of work, and I'm incredibly proud of her :D. Hope you all like her! ^^

Incredible! You did a truly fantastic job.
How did you do the wings so smoothly? O_O From plexiglass, too? Like the stuff you get at the hardware store? I made some out of a clear plastic pencil case, but they came out...not very smooth.

Thank you! :) and yes, I used that same thing for the wings hehe. I used some small sanding bits with my Dremel tool for shaping them. The key is to avoid scratching the surface as much as possible xD.

I use it mostly when the pony has sculpted parts :) I use the sanding bits for detail and smoothing along with regular sand paper hehe.

Hmmm...looks like the only place I can find that sells 'Testor's dullcote' is Amazon. Is it supposed to be a spray-on?

I've been using a non-toxic paint-on varnish, but I think it goes on too thick. What you've got on your ponies looks better, but, is it safe to use indoors? Like in a living room? I have very little space to work.

Yep, it's a spray-on sealant, and unfortunately I wouldn't recommend using it indoors unless is next to a window. I tried using it in my room but the air residue became overpowering x_x and had to vent my room asap. Since it's a very quick step, I just step outside my house to the garage and spray there :) and just wait a minute or less for it to set and slightly dry, and then I go back inside hehe.

I used a paint-on varnish before, and they would recommend to thin it with water so it's not as thick, but for some reason that didn't work for me and would leave residues on the pony :( never understood why.
