Creating a Neck
In this video I go over the process of sculpting a neck on your Breyer drastic custom.
You will start with a headless model & reconstruct the new neck using the following tools:

Kion is a Drastic Custom Fjord from a Breyer Classic Halflinger Mare. He was re-positioned into a standing pose with a long drooping mane. In this video series I document the entire process it takes to deconstruct, reconstruct & paint the final piece.
PART 1: Deconstructing
In this part I go through the process of deconstructing the model using a Dremel to sand, cut & carve. Then I use a heat gun to reposition the plastic.
PART 2: Reconstructing
In this part I go through the process of reconstructing the model into it's new pose. I use a combination of wire, super glue & blue painters tape.
PART 3: Painting
In the final part I document the entire process it takes to paint the model to the classic primitive dun coat colour of the Fjord.
