Absolutely beautiful ! :) she's perfect, all credit to you for the huge time and effort you put in it was so worth it!

The little subtleties like her colour scheme and Appaloosa colouring all make her unique :)

Have a question though, how did you do the hair because it looks FLAWLESS
I made a centaur of Ginger from black beauty (see my gallery)with alpaca hair and cut about 6 horizontal grooves to insert it in with super glue. Now problem is where ever the hair is inside a groove it's fine because I only need to glue coat the end of the hair which is then both totally hidden inside the groove and firmly lodged and won't budge.

But then I ran out of grooves (it was my first time trying on a full model) and had a terrible time trying to glue the hair directly onto the head as when it dried in a few hours even if I'm REALLY carefful it dries frosty white and looks bad :(

It's a bit different to your girls hair because it lies flat and straight so nothing covers up the head unless its done right if that makes sense .

Do you have any tips or suggestions for me for applying hair? If you do I'd be so grateful!
It worked up to a point until the glue kept messing things up so she just had a really big forehead now and i cant make anymore holes or grooves in the baked clay :( really want this to work

Thanks in advance, love your centauress she inspired me :))

Amazing work! I dunno who you sold your soul to to get the hair to flow the way it does, but it was well worth it.

no...you are porbably not baking it hot enough or long enough. there are a lot of people that tell you you can bake it at 250F or lower for only 15 mins and that is just wrong it will break if you do that. you must do 270F for 15 mins per 1/4 inch thickness and do it all at once so for "Eos" she baked for about 1h15mins on her prosculpt parts...her horse parts were done first since her legs are made from super flex and it must be baked at 285F and that would burn the prosculpt
