AUSTRALIAN SHEPHERD

To celebrate 20 years in Model Horses,  I am offering a Limited Time Only Special Anniversary Pricing!!  To celebrate, I am going back to the prices  I used 20 years ago!!  See below for more information.
 
Commissioned Orders for Paintings are always taken.   
 
First come, first served. 
 
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
Please read the following information thoroughly!  If you have any questions, please contact me! 
 
I can now do models that are close to stablemate size.   For years I have not offered that choice.   I prefer resin, plastic or china.  Please ask before shipping.   No molded on tack or costumes: carousel horses, arabian costumes, etc...
 
I do not do extensive pinto or appaloosa patterns.  I feel there are other artists that can do those types of colorations much better than I can.  Check with me BEFORE you send your piece. 
 
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
 
All pieces must arrive already prepped.  This means that all seams/flashing are sanded down, divots, bumps are sanded away & the piece is coated in a WHITE primer geared towards acrylic paint.  I ask that a white based primer be painted on the piece.  I do not do any sanding, filing or any other kind of prep work.  I just paint!
 
A $50 non-refundable deposit is required to hold a painting slot.   The piece needs to arrive a week prior to your painting slot.   IF you miss your date, then it will be applied to the next available date.  All pieces must be paid in full when piece arrives to be painted.  You are also responsible for return shipping and insurance, delivery confirmation, etc. 
 
A photograph(s) or magazine clipping should be provided for color /markings match.  These will be returned.  Even though I try my best to get the exact shade and/or markings/patterns mirrored on your piece, it is sometimes impossible to be exact.  I reserve the right to artist interpretations of the sample swatches.
 
Yes, I do accept trades.  I am looking for most Iberian/Andalusian/Lusitano/Spanish, Paso and Mustang RESINS.  Some stock horse Resins, too.  Also, any Parelli Natural Horsemanship Level kits...(not the tack, but the dvds/books.)  Let me know what you have!
 
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
 
In the past I have had problems with new Breyers or Stone horses.  After painting, they seem to seep and cause the newly painted surface to become sticky.  I have no control over this situation.  Sometimes resins will seep over time, too.
~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
 
I retain the right to refuse to do a color or paint on certain horse molds.  I paint with an airbrush, pastels and colored pencil.  An ideal painting surface is very smooth to perfectly smooth.  Bodies that are particularly rough do not create the best painting surface.  The finished product will not show off the quality of work I do.
