Custom MLP: Bait Prep Tutorial by The-Lancastrian Custom MLP: Bait Prep Tutorial by The-Lancastrian
Note: this is a HUGE picture. Download to see it full size.

The first of my promised tutorials: preparing the bait. This is how I take a store bought pony and turn it into a blank canvas, ready for sculpting, painting, or whatever else I plan to do with it. Other tutorials will be posted when I have time, but finishing ponies for the show takes precedent. If you want a tutorial on a specific aspect of customizing, please ask! I'll be hitting the major points (Bait prep, full body repaint, symbol painting, eye painting, rehairing), but anything else will only be posted if requested. Enjoy!


My Little Pony belongs to Hasbro.

What about ponies that don't have a neck ring, and their heads are just completely attached?
Should I just cut it off and glue it back on?

Can I use nailpolish remover for the eye and symbol?

Yep and myself i think it's better since it has to risk of doing the pony any harm just takes longer to do but i use nailpolish remover it works.

Do you know how to remove the cutie mark on ponies with the raised cutie mark?

you could try a smooth sandpaper after washing the paint stuff off.

Tried that, didn't work. It's a piece of plastc held onto the pony with glue and a knob on the inside. Any way to melt the glue, maybe?

Huh, that may work. Never thought of that before. I picked up some acetone today so I'll give that a try, thanks!
