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'?)
