Resin & Custom Model Horses
Welcome to Total Image Equine. I'm Kimberly A. Bleecker and have been in this hobby since the early '70s. I have seen model horses grow into a wonderful place to see, collect and show model horses. I've been painting almost as long as I've been involved in showing/collecting them.
The mediums I use are oil paints, pastels, enamels and acrylics. Mostly I depend on the rich oils to bring them to life. It takes longer, but with the many layers of color, I get a warm "live" flesh effect.
I work in all scales. From the half inch to the larger traditional 1:9 scale. Love painting those odd colors. Grullas, dunskins. brindles, silvers, dunalinos and extreme patterns. With the more common colors, I take them to a new level with rich, deep tones and shadings.
I do take commissions and the cost depends on the scale, color & pattern. Every model is different. The cost can range from $80 to $600(not including the model). Email me with what you wanted done and I will give you the price.
I always have finished models available.
Check my Facebook page. I often show models coming up in different stages of painting.
I thought I would add an album of some of the tiny Mini Whinnies. They stand about an inch high. And yes, I paint them in oils! They are smooth! I often have them on eBay. Enjoy!
