Custom Cheese Sandwich by AleximusPrime Custom Cheese Sandwich by AleximusPrime

My first custom Cheese Sandwich!

He was made from a Princess Twilight toy and had his legs shortened and trimmed to take off the ‘anklet’ and the wings were removed along with the horn.  I used Sculpey III clay to make the shape of his shirt around his body as well as giving him a male pony snout and eyes and then sculpted the mane and tail (which was HELL to do!).

After everything was baked I painted him with Apple Barrel acrylic paint and some Testors acrylics (for parts like the white in the eyes).  His cutie mark was painted with a tiny sharp brush with acrylics and turned out quite well for such a small painted object.  My only mistake was using flat black enamel for the lining of the upper eye because when I was sealing him with some watered down Mod Podge, it started to run off but I was able to wash that away with a little bit of the water and right now he’s sealed good enough that it shouldn’t be a problem, but I will certainly never be using enamel for this type of project again.

Well, there’s Cheese!  I’m really liking how he turned out and I would love to try another one someday but that hair is really tough to do so it’s going to be hard.

Also, he is on sale for $55 if you want him!  Send me a private note if you are interested in purchasing him!

Well it's hard cuz you gotta apply the paint several times and it gets tiring to have to wait and wait between each coat but once it's done, it looks great and sealing it will prevent chipping.

It was tedious to do the mane and tail from what I remember.  D:

I hear ya!
have you ever tired useing a hair dryer to dry your paint? it really works!
it drys the paint in seconds (usually) and it dosn't harm the clay. 

And I can imaigne it's annoying.
I really wanna make one but I can't find the right mold.
I have consitered buying one of those Shopkins Ponies and making THAT into cheese
(Cause they have the funky body shape, small head and they aren inexpensive)
but the problem with that is that the toys are tiny compaired to a normal MLP
otherwise it's the PERFECT shape! (and i normaly dont care for shopkins... infact i think they are creepy) XD

( sorry for the late reply)

You should try making one for Weird Al, the voice of Cheesy-boy.
