Custom Lauren Faust by FallSilently Custom Lauren Faust by FallSilently
A Canterlot Celestia remodeled after the OC of Lauren Faust :iconfyre-flye:

This is the second custom pony I've made, after my Nightmare Moon, and the first time I've ever used Sculpey clay in my life. That stuff's amazing, and really easy to use. There's a little bit above her left eye, with most of it above her right and down the side.

Lauren's OC doesn't wear shoes but the toy mould annoyingly features them, so I had to come up with a colour scheme. I digitally tested a good few but settled on black with red trim as it matches the simple black top in her profile's self-portrait. I also carved a pencil out of a toothpick to complete the look.

Sprayed in Citadel Skull White and hand-painted in acrylics. The mane is trimmed and modified with Sculpey clay (and thanks to AutumnSpice for the tips on using it!).

Do you take commissions and how much do you ask for one?

When you modified the mane with Sculpey, did you bake it on the pony, or separately? I'm looking to make a Lauren custom of my own, and I'd appreciate your advice! :heart:

I sculpted it onto the pony and then boiled the whole thing in a saucepan for 15 minutes. I'm worried that baking them will melt or warp the plastic, so this is how most people do it, apparently. The only problem with it is, the plastic gets very soft when boiled for that long, and if the pony is resting on her side in the pot, its legs could settle into a slightly bent-in new position, with the hooves not quite level on the surface. Faust's rear right leg has that just a little, Pluto's is more pronounced. Just keep an eye on it in the pot, don't leave it lying on the same side all the time and keep it standing as it dries and cools.

I've done research on custom ponies and I also do quite a bit of work with Sculpey as well, and if you remove the magnet from the foot (I haven't worked with the newer ones, do they still have magnets?) they are perfectly fine to bake. if you keep them at the lowest possible temperature they will be fine, and if you are worried you can always take the head off and insert an armature.

Anywa, your ponies are amazing. I could never get that much motion in my manes and tails. And the details are so wonderfully clean.

Aaah, thank you! That's so helpful. :D I didn't realize boiling Sculpey was a thing you could do!

I want one of these, so on the chance that I may one day meet Lauren Faust I will make her sign it.

Awwwwww maaaaaan! D: I'm halfway through making a faust pony toy and it's no where near as good as this! I'm super bummed out now...

I know how that feels... I started making this a couple of weeks ago, hoping to be the first, but then that beautiful, fully-sculpted clay Faust pony appeared and stole my thunder. I would have had this finished sooner otherwise.

Thanks so much, all, for the comments!

I love her facial expression the most. It has a warm feeling to it, almost motherly. (Which makes sense as she is the mother of all G4 ponies XD)
