View Full Version : Pre-introducing Makeba!

Thought I'd formally announce my new medallion, soon to be out in resin.

Makeba is a Cape mountain zebra mare, named after South African singer and activist Miriam Makeba.
The Cape is one of two mountain zebra subspecies, the other being the Hartmann's, and almost went extinct in the mid-20th century. Mountain zebras have a dewlap (yes, the neck is supposed to look like that!) and a characteristic zipper pattern along the croup.

The current batch of medallions are cast in hard synthetic plaster which, while sandable, doesn't crumble and takes paint well. They're about 7ish cm across - sorry, I haven't got a ruler - and between .5 and 1 cm thick. All need some degree of prepwork.
These I'm selling for $5 a piece + shipping. Will also trade for new mold SMs (Andalusian, Mustang, Icey).

I like this-may have to order. Estimate on postage?

You in the US? I haven't weighed them yet (and presumably the eventual resins will be a different weight), and it depends on how I pack, but it looks like around $8 for the US, 7€ in Europe.
