Older Posts and Picturetrail

If you are interested, please check out "Older Posts" at the bottom of the current post.  Also, there are a bunch of pictures on Picturetrail.  The link is at the top of the Artrix-Playtime page.  Thanks for looking!

An addition to the steampunk horse.......

Here I added some metal letters I picked up on sale for $2 in a nice box.  I should have bought them all but unfortunately, I didn't.  They don't have any more.....bah!  Now I think I'm really finished with this guy.  Renee in Oklahoma gave me the "saying"!  The coloration is so different from the picture in the previous photo.  I didn't change the color....the camera's fault! It's black....not blue!
Back to the vintage look......I love it too much to give it up.  Steampunk was different and a challenge for me.

Revised Steampunk

The horse below is no more!  I painted the area around the horse grey with some drybrushed areas of metallic pewter which doesn't show in the photo......darn!  I also put a rod underneath his feet to "ground" him.
I got a chuckle when Renee said my horse had a spring in his step!  : )  Did you notice the frame is now painted black?  I think the whole thing is better thanks to some much needed advice from friends.  Click to enlarge.
