Thanks for looking and for the nice comments. Smiley
The fjord horses are so fun to make because of the black stripe running right in the middle of the white on the mane and tail.  I really enjoyed making him.  The photo doesn't show the polymer hooves too well-sorry about that.  But, it was the first time I used polymer clay to make hooves and add them to the needlefelt.  I felt it was much more realistic and it really added to the whole strength of the way it stands.  I don't use any frames inside, that's all wool, so long legs can be a bit bendy without the polymer clay hoof bases.
If you do sew one, and post it, please let me know so I can see!

Hi, Diane,
I used original Sculpey in the box, painted with acrylics and used a spray acrylic non yellowing clear coating-many coats.
He's about two inches tall from ear tip to nose.

Thank you, Diane!  That is SO helpful.  I can't believe I never knew about this before.  I'm so glad I know now. Smiley

Thanks everyone!  Thanks for the nice comments and good suggestions.  I think it must have had a bubble in there that I didn't take care of properly.  Undecided  It took me so long to make and I was so excited to have it all finished for my friend.  So, this stopped me for a while, but I soldiered on and I've managed to successfully fire a couple of items since then.  But, now I'm REALLY careful about proper drying and air bubbles.

Well, huh.  Thx nanner for explaining that.  I've heard of epoxy, but I never thought it was something within my sphere!  I've used the superglue for years.  I haven't had any problems, but I'm always interested in learning more or better techniques.  I wonder if someone out there has tried the two ways and if they can give pros and cons on one or both.

I guess I should crawl out from under the rock now and then!   Cheesy  I really don't know what epoxy is.  But, I'll check it out.  Thanks, nanner. Cheesy

Hmmm.  What is epoxying?  Undecided

I have a soft spot for scenes from the country.  This is a really nice collection!  I LIKE your dolphin!  It has a good feeling about it and I like all the blues.  I like the flag drawing of your house, too and the farm field.  Those were my faves, but I like them all.  It's neat to see a collection like this.  It was worth the dial up download time for me. Smiley
