Welcome to PonySculptors!

A place for pony sculptures, and the people who create/enjoy them!


All pony sculptors and appreciators are welcome to join. Any pony or character from the show that is sculpted or carved by hand can be shared here. If you're an aspiring pony sculptor or a how-it's-made fan, check out the WIP gallery!

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES



:bulletgreen: What we accept


We accept sculpted and carved figures featuring MLP:FiM characters. Figures can be any type and any material as long as they're crafted by hand.

:bulletyellow: Can I submit customs?


The figure must be original work - if it was made from a pre-existing pony base, such as a toy or 3D print, it will not be accepted into the gallery. (However, the original sculpt would be allowed if submitted by the creator.)

:bulletgreen: Can I submit WIPs?


Yes! Works in progress are accepted and encouraged - it's a great way to learn from each other's work!

:bulletgreen: What about OC's?


Original characters are welcome as long as they are inspired by or stylistically consistent with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

:bulletorange: Anything else?


PonySculptors is open to pony fans of all ages. If your sculpture contains mature and/or graphic subject matter, we may choose not to display it in the gallery.

:bulletgreen: Where do I submit?


Submit directly to the folder that says--well, "SUBMIT"--and we'll take it from there.

:bulletorange::bulletorange::bulletorange: This group is intended for made-from-scratch ponies only. As much as we love them, customs and 3D printed works will not be accepted into the gallery.

Hi there! We just wanted to let you know that we'll be arranging a Secret Santa among the members of PonySculptors for the holiday season! Here's a couple of quick guidelines...

:bulletblue:Sorry, but we will only accept sculptures! It wouldn't be fair to have someone spend hours on a gorgeous bust of Rarity and have their partner do a five minute sketch in Photoshop. We want everyone to get something out of it!

:bulletblue:You must be willing to ship your sculpture and pay the cost. If you cannot afford/are not capable of sending something overseas, let us know in your comment and we'll pair you with someone in the same country as you.

:bulletblue:Please, please don't submit your sculpture to the public until a certain date! You wouldn't want to ruin the surprise~


If you'd like to be involved, fill this out and send it as a Note to TripleRainbowDash. We'll be taking applications until November 24th, then partners will be drawn! Feel free to make a journal about our event as well- we need all the applications we can get! :)

Thank you for accepting my request to the group! :)
I recently started sculpting and would like to know what types of material/clay would be easy to work with and what is suggested?

Thank you again! :hug:

This is only my opinion, others have other experience. But here are my two cents.
Depends what do you want with it. FIMO for example is easy to handle and you can buy that everywhere. Super sculpey is in a higher quality and some sculptors say it's better for complex sculpting. Magic sculp is almost the same, but you don't have to bake it and it's really hard and tough. As a side effect however, it's really aggresive to your skin. Gloves are a must have to handle this material.
Green Stuff or Pro create are more for miniatures and really small figurines or details. Too stringy for big figrurines in brushable size and above.

One of my favorites however are plastic sheets. Most of my figurines are made of those, only the skin is clay. The result is a figurine, that would survive some falling.

Welcome to PonySculptors! :la:

Personally, I think Super Sculpey is the easiest to use. :) It holds details extremely well and holds up to long periods of baking (I'm a little forgetful, so it ends up sitting in the oven for a while... no repercussions, though!). =P I wish you luck in your sculpting adventures! :heart:
