Ok, so here is a full page of my Rarity custom from 5 different angles much like I did with the Fluttershy one.
First I sculpted the hair out of Sculpey III oven-bake clay for her which was not easy mind you. Then I cut her hair off with scissors (much to her dismay) and saved it in case I may use it again. I then put the hair on which was probably just as hard. The tiny little tufts of hair that stick out on her head wouldn't allow the top mane to attach so well so I put a mound of purple clay on it to act as a base and then smeared it on. I ended up having to connect the lower mane to the top one and it even wrapped around the back of her left ear so it would be less likely to fall off. The tail was quite simple to put on, but unlike Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash, her tail only connects to her butt, it doesn't touch her legs which is actually helpful cuz then it is less likely to fall off. Anyways, I then baked her in the oven, alongside Rainbow Dash, for 15ish minutes at 275 degrees Fahrenheit. Yes, that's right, I baked the hair AND the ponies in there. Do not be scared, they will not melt, but when they come out, they'll be really flimsy and gooey so don't pick them up, just keep them on the tray and cool them somewhere. You could put them out in a room with no heat or in the fridge or in front of a fan to cool. Once that's over with, you're pretty much done!
It's too bad they're a bit too fragile to horse around with (see what I did there), but they are customs, so they're just made for the sake of show accuracy. Rarity turned out beautiful, although her hair is a bit too dark and the front mane doesn't really come forward quite enough but it looks ok. I'm surprised with how well the tail turned out! It took me forever to get it looking the way it does! I have no idea how
does it, but that guy is a genius sculptor!!! I also don't really like how her hair doesn't shine, it should. I might take some glossy finish and paint over her hair someday to make it prettier, but I don't know what to use so give me suggestions if you have any.
So anyways, thanks for waiting a rather long time for this to happen. With all the free and lonely time I had this weekend, it made it rather easy for me to do, but I do wanna get more done like the CMC and maybe some BG ponies as well! So give me a critique if you can and thanks again!
