|Itty Bitty Betty
|Itty Bitty Betty is a Nafre resin by Katlyn Cooper of Grain of Sand Studios.
She is smaller than the typical micro mini size models, which make her itty
bitty indeed! ;-)
|Betty was hand-painted entirely in oils under a lighted magnifying glass to
a lovely shaded bay. Despite the fact that she is super-small, I still tried to
put in as many details as possible. As you can see, she has everything
from tiny painted chestnuts to minuscule eye whites.
|Betty's teeny eyes, hooves, and nostrils were painstakingly glossed
for further realism in this tiny equine!
|"So, just how small is Itty Bitty Betty?"
|For those of you familiar with Breyer model horses, here is
Betty, unpainted, standing next to a Breyer Stablemate foal.
|And here is Betty standing with all four of her little hooves on a penny! D:
|Betty, looking like a fairy's mount, standing next to my husband's hand.
|Prior to taking her to her new owner, I took Betty with me to Red Dirt Roundup
2012, the largest live model horse show in Oklahoma. You can barely see her,
looking like a speck on the vast table. Unfortunately, she didn't place, which is
the sad lot in life for many tiny resins. It is far easier for a judge to see the
details on a larger model.
|Betty hamming it up on Ragnarok's foreleg. XD
|Betty is owned by my mother-in-law, Martha Winslow. Here she is at her
new home, standing on a shiny penny. Beside her is a minuscule
blown-glass Pegasus that Martha picked up in Italy. Betty doesn't feel so
small with him at her side! XD
