The figure was sculpted in Super Sculpey, cast in resin and then painted using acrylic paints.
Fluttershy is in scale to the PVC figures, but has a much more show-accurate design.
EDIT: Copies of this figure, both painted and unpainted (for those whoŽd like to paint/ modify it themselves), are available. Just contact me via email (email@example.com) if you are interested.
if you dont mind me asking about how much would a painted one cost?
Every time I see a Fluttershy sculpture, it takes away a little bit of my heart.
Does "cast in resin" mean that you made a mold from the Super Sculpey and the figure itself is resin? Though I've seen a lot of good pony sculpting and 3D I don't know much about any of the processes.
Sure, it may be difficult to mass produce toys of this quality for a low enough price, but that just makes me think that Hasbro should try something like low fee per-unit licensing.
That's icing on the cake of your fantastic technique in making the original models, especially on such a tiny scale.
