"Archimedes" Auction


Now on My Auction Barn! This is "Archimedes", a custom on the Breyer G1 Standing Foal stablemate. Archimedes has lowered his neck for an inquisitive but slightly unsure peek at something on the ground, his new tail straight out and at the ready to flag up when he frolics away. His resculpted ears are perked forward at attention, and are complete with soft foal fuzz.

Archimedes has been painted in a rich sooty bay with soft pangare. His legs are delicately shaded with smudgy dark joints and his face is packed with detail, including a wee star with tiny hairs. His mane and tail have fine light fuzz shaded throughout. Archimedes is finished off with all the details my work is known for including detailed eyes, textured chestnuts, and hooves with growth rings.

Shipping is $10 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! Payments are offered with a 10% deposit, 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!

"Hodor" Auction


Now on My Auction Barn! This is "Hodor", a Touch of Class custom. Yes, you read that right! Hodor is a complete resculpt, using the original Breyer as an armature. He represents the French style Percheron, rounder and less leggy than the American style. Hodor won the 2016 Breyerfest Best Customs Contest in the Most Extreme Custom division. His ribbons stay with me, but don't worry, he can still show at Breyerfest Live for a shot at more!

Hodor has been painted in the iconic Percheron heavily dappled grey. He has many layers of varying shades stippled and scrubbed on in oils to replicate the grainy to soft fading found on greys. He has a delicate hair-like painted texture that makes his color come alive. His greyed out mane and tail are shaded with greys and creams to create depth, and he has lots of little touches like lip wrinkles and softly shaded ear hair. Hodor is finished off with all the details my work is known for including detailed eyes, textured chestnuts, and hooves with growth rings.

Hodor's base is lined with cobblestones and topped with very fine scale grass, perfect for a nice spring romp. He comes with a hard case with fitted foam for maximum protection.

Shipping is $40 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! Payments are offered with a 10% deposit, with the remaining payments to be evenly spread in monthly installments of up to 1 year. 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!
