New Ear

Dab glue and baking soda
on the base of the horse's head.

I was very happy to acquire another G1 Breyer Saddlebred Stablemate from a friend most recently. He came as a little "fixer upper" with a bent leg and a missing ear.

Sometimes ears break all the way down to the base of the skull and the method to fixing such an area can be messy. Such messy fixes make for great blog entries though and I documented this ear fix today in the studio.

Using various Dremel bits
slowly drill away at the blob.

It's now starting to really take shape.
Drill slowly taking breaks as needed.

After much drilling
the blob now resembles an ear.
