It’s always good to have a plan B right? Boy has this been the year for that! Well when I released Micro Hazel in pewter in 2019 there were 3/4 of the castings were deemed seconds, I didn’t sell very many, they got returned and melted down (missing hooves was a common issue)…and the mold didn’t hold out as long as I’d hoped. The few batches I did sell were selling in batches of 20-50 within minutes. Still though people were highly frustrated no matter when I offered them so this limited time open edition and slightly larger Bantam/Banty scale is hopefully the best of both worlds for everyone! So much detail, even her little shoes and nostril wrinkles came through this time! Introducing “Hazel B”!
About: Technically bantam, a hair bigger than micro scale. This bantam edition will be 3d printed for me (Morgen Kilbourn) in one of the newest, stronger and higher detailed methods for 3d prints available (more below***) . “Hazel” was a 2008 sculpture released now in curio scale in 2015, and micro scale ;pewter in 2019.

About the edition
***3D Printing is being done by Khrysalis Studios – Art by Rayvin Maddockc using the same technology she used to produce 500 micronaut prints. These are being heat and UV cured for added strength and while still a tiny detailed work of art, is a lot more forgiving than many 3d prints I’ve had (and I’ve been cleaning them in various sizes and all kinds of printing materials for my editions since 2005!).
These 3D Printed castings have NO SEAMS and very few little sprue-like bumps from printing supports that sand away extremely easy. They are fragile like any tiny resins or pewters. Know too they do not bend with heat. They clean up quite quickly and require MUCH less primer. Some faint printing lines can be seen but are part of the process and typically buff out with a soft nail buffing sponge or even disappear with initial layers of primer.
I opted for this media due to the ease in prepping and ability to give customers details much closer to the original large sculptures as much as could be possible in this tiny scale!
This is fine art, not a toy. Fragile & Not suitable for small children.
