Swap name: Custom My Little Pony Swap
Craftster member who is organizing this swap: nikkisixx66
Sign-up date range: 2/16/06-2/28/06
Date to send item by: 3/27/06

Limited to a certain number of people? (optional): NOPE

Non-U.S. participants allowed?: Yes!

All ages allowed? Or 18+?: Yes

Organizer is aware of current list of "suspended traders"
list and will not allow those members to participate: YES

Organizer meets the 4 conditions for swapping and will make sure that every participant meets these conditions: YES

Details of swap:
This swap will be for fabulous customized My Little Ponies.
Last year the Pony Project featured customized My Little Pony toys by designers and artists.  You can see them here: http://www.theponyproject.com/gallery/
Each participant will customize/decorate 1 My Little Pony to send to their swap partner.  The link above is a very good source for ideas and for examples of how the ponies can be customized. 

The sign ups close at the end of February and everyone will have just over 3 weeks to create their ponies. 
Since My Little Ponies have gone back into production they are available very cheaply at any toy store/department (around $5).  They can also be found easily on ebay, though be warned that some of the original ones have become collectors items and can subsequently be a bit pricey!

I just signed up! 

But I have a question: what sort of paint/sealer should we use on the ponies to make sure it doesn't flake off?  Any ideas?

Woo Hoo I just signed up I am stoked!!!  I loved the custom pony show last year, I have the juxtapoz they were in.  What a rad idea.  I am so EXCITED!!!!!

I would think acrylic painting mediums would work great on sealing paint up, or if you would use enamels like you paint models with usually there is no need for a sealant.  Krylon also makes a crystal glaze that I found in our local mom and pop art store that works really well too.
