Iridium - 2007
Custom Modified Pony
NOT Affiliated with Hasbro
Custom by Aikarin

Ahhh...this pony is the very last of the 2007 batch.  Iridium is a peacock themed big brother custom pony with multi-media wings!  This pony sat in the "unfinished baits" pile for over a year before I decided to resurrect him.  Base pony was a pink colored big brother.

Iridium's wings were sculpted from two part epoxy over a wire base.  Before the epoxy hardened, real peacock feathers were embedded in the clay.  It took two tries before they looked decent, the first set was very messy indeed!  The epoxy was black, if I remember correctly, and given a green mica glaze.

Iridium's eyes are green, gold, and dark blue.  Lashes are black and lined with a touch of gold, so they show up against his dark base color.  The pony isn't this shiny, but I had to use intense lighting because the base color was so dark.  He was entirely repainted in a solid dark blue.

This pony's hair is supposed to mimic the colors in the peacock's tail.  It is a blend of many different colors of saran hair.  I really like the way this turned out!

Iridium's tail features the same colors.

Here's his non-display side.  Notice the hoof gradients. I gave them a light dusting of iridescent mica powders, so they have a bit of a greenish tint.

Iridium is a CUSTOM PONY, not affiliated with Hasbro, and this design will not be repeated.
He is signed and dated under one hoof.


Here's a pic before completion under different lighting conditions:
