"Nevado" Auction


Now on My Auction Barn! This is "Nevado", a custom on the brand new Breyer Duende. Nevado is now a mule, and while he's still in his original standing position, I have done some resculpting to to give him a mule rather than a horse body. His hips, back and withers are modified, as is his neck to be less cresty. He has new feet and a cute short muley tail and roached mane. The real fun is on his new face - Nevado not only has new ears of course, but he has a quivery, floppy lip complete with teeth and tongue peeking out. He also has new eyelids and an ever so slightly convex profile that completes the "slightly rough around the edges, but handsome" look.

Nevado has been painted in a bay leopard appaloosa with the wildest spotting pattern imaginable. He is based off of a real mule with the same spotting, but is not a portrait. His spots range from deep solid browns and blacks, through rich mahogany and toasty tan, to so speckled with white they are almost non-existent. All of these spots overlap in intriguing ways so there's always something new to find! Nevado is finished off with all the details my work is known for including detailed eyes, textured chestnuts, mottling, and striped hooves with growth rings.

Shipping is $25 including insurance in the US. International shipping will be actual price and quoted at the time of the auction ending. Sorry, I will not put a lower value on the package or mark as gift for international shipments.

Time payments are welcome! I know December can be an expensive month, so for this auction I am putting a $100 cap on my usual 10% down payment, with the remaining payments to be evenly spread in monthly installments of up to 6 months. I am happy to work with you on scheduling if you require a slightly different arrangement. Please inquire before bidding to work out any details outside of these terms, thank you!

Much of his body has been resculpted, with adjustments to all of his legs to put him in a more crouched position. Tumbleweed has a new arched neck, and some facial resculpting including a new scrunched up nose and mouth, eye wrinkles, and twitched back fuzzy ears - one with a little notch at the tip from an old injury. He also has new hooves and pasterns, complete with hairy fetlocks, and a wind-knotted mane and tail.

Tumbleweed has been painted in a rich dappled sooty buckskin with a wild frame and sabino pattern. His mane has lots of white to black hair transitions, and is heavily shaded with sunburnt tips and creams throughout the white. His tail is also sunburnt, highlighting all of his cool ropey hair pieces and tangles. Tumbleweed is finished off with all the details my work is known for including detailed eyes (one mixed blue and brown, the other blue), textured chestnuts, and hooves with growth rings.

Arthur has been painted in a soft spotted dun with dorsal stripe, transverse wither stripe, and dark, fuzzy ear rims.

Vivaldi Auction


Now on My Auction Barn. This is "Vivaldi", a custom on the Breyer G1 ASB. While he looks similar to the original, he actually has quite a bit of resculpting with a completely new neck, lengthened barrel and new hindquarters, and slightly modified leg position for a more floating, action-y pose. Vivaldi also has all new feet with tiny shoes and pads, a new nose and mouth, and new ears. His tail is long and flowy, and his mane is decorated with red and white braids. Vivaldi has been painted in dapple grey with lots of contrasty dapples and more subtle dappling and shading in greyed out areas.

Mickey Auction


Now on My Auction Barn! This is "Mickey", a custom on the new Breyer Shannondell. Mickey is a simple custom with just a few resculpting fix-ups along molding lines, especially around his tail head, forelock and in between his nostrils. His shoes were also touched up and re-carved to ensure they are all even and level. Mickey won this year's Breyerfest Best Customs Contest for Workmanship. His ribbons stay with me, but don't worry, he can still show at Breyerfest Live for a shot at more!

Mickey has been painted in a deep red bay with a mega-flashy sabino roan pattern. He was painted with hundreds of thousands of individually placed hairs and tiny spots in many layers and colors to create a realistic depth and texture to his coat. Mickey's pattern was inspired by the Clydesdale Samarah Park Regalia, and also the colorful Clydesdales of Disneyland. His name hints at the hidden Mickeys found throughout his pattern. There are three, can you find them all?


Mickey's mane and tail are heavily bleached as this pattern's hair often is, and his white feathers are subtly shaded with many creams and greys for added depth. He is finished off with all the details my work is known for including detailed eyes, textured chestnuts, hooves with growth rings, and nail heads and clinches for the shoes.


Shipping is $25 including insurance in the US. International shipping will be actual price and quoted at the time of the auction ending. Sorry, I will not put a lower value on the package or mark as gift for international shipments.
