Rarity Solid Hair Walkthrough by Shattered-Earth Rarity Solid Hair Walkthrough by Shattered-Earth

I forgot to say please use a spray varnish or other clear protective coat on the hair before attaching to make it glossy and avoid scratches




:damphyr: This is a simple walk through of how I made my rarity with *OtakuSquirrel's resin kit. I'd never done this kind of thing before, so i'm confident you can get the same result since i'm a total nubcake as well!

If I were to redo it, i would 100% use the putty and primer to make her more perfect, but as it is I still love her so <3

If anything is unclear or not intelligible (i've been known to make many a typo) please ask in the comments, i read all of them :3

Note: Oh and I know someone will say something about why I cut her hair instead of dehairing it. I guess i did that because that's how the sculpt maker did it and also because i never ever ever ever intend of rehairing her since i permanently glued her new hair on. Dehairing would just lead to more possible errors on my end too, haha. It's a totally valid and probably preferred way of getting rid of the hair if you are up to it :

Note2: from ~CustomAnon Resin dust is pretty highly toxic. I hope that everyone is aware of that? You should always use a respirator when sanding or shaving resin.

wow this really helps! c: I also loved how you put faces on the box cutter blade! Personally, I think Rarity looks better with the mane and tail you made for her. (she looks so much cleaner and more .. uh.. 'Raritier'?)

It's the dust the resin creates when you sand it, like wood dust when you sand wood but resin?

DAMN! You'e just SO good. ><
Bu thank you very much for making this walkthrough. I'm sure it'll be a great help, when I get to "fix" my ponies. Though, I'll probably use some different material to make the hair, cause I can't get the same as you.

You can totally get the same though, i bought the hair shapes from *OtakuSquirrel!

you're welcome. ^^

I doubt I can get the same martial, since I'm don't live in the US. I think I'll have to stick with the Cernit Clay I've used for my first try.

also, when your sanding, you can use a little bit of water to help with keeping the dust down :)
