Queen Chrysalis by balthazar147 Queen Chrysalis by balthazar147
my most beutifull custom yet, if i say so myself, this baby is made of one of the pink celestia's , and maaan did it take long to get evrything in order,

i did something all new, normaly i work with hot glue,
this time i worked with actual plastic for the mane wing and tail

the colors were kinda anoying at some time but the metalic gave a nice finish~ im realy happy with her, and it was both fun... as a pain to make...
my poor ... poor burned/cut/painted/glued fingers ;~;

Wow it looks great! I tried making one myself last week, but the legs broke in the oven so I have to make new legs. Luckily it had only been in the oven for 5 minutes, so I can add new legs (with wiring in them) and not have to glue them on.

I was totally planning on making a blind-bag size changeling minion for my own Chrysalis! I was worried about the size difference but that looks great! I'll have to do that when I get some time. Nicely done.

Tell me about your technique. How did you use hot glue? I'm clumsy (I can completely identify with your finger pains) so I tend to avoid the stuff like the plague (and my glue gun is literally 20 years old and very temperamental). How did you modify the feet? I used a drill but I found that doing the half-holes with it was next to impossible because of the nature of the plastic and I didn't feel like carving it out would produce an acceptable smooth result so I left them out. What's your sculpting media of choice? I'm a Sculpey addict but I like to compare notes about different products.

Sorry for all the questions! I'm just interested in seeing what you did differently than me and how I might improve in future builds. I know this was a difficult custom to do, especially because the Celestia base has no tooth whatsoever. You did a lovely job and should be proud.

i havent used sculptey yet, for it is hard to get where i live. i use either hot glue or plastic, the holes are drilled, but not by dril but with a dremel, wich is a very handy tool for these things, i use Citadel paint to paint, way smoother, acrylic can leave nasty lines,

and thank you for all the kind words ;3

Citadel paint? I'll have to look into that. Thanks!
