Martha Bechtel's Profile

About

Welcome to the world of horses a hue askew!

From purple appaloosas to more realistic shades, there are an abundance of equines roaming these halls. Over the years other critters have joined the herd and I've moved from doing primary customer Breyer model horses to sculpting my own magnets and painting a handful of non-equines.

I love trying out new things, so just about everything you see in the shop has a corresponding tutorial on my blog (www.Martha.net). I'm working on offering kits as well as finished products and am almost to the point where I can start offering eBooks beyond just the Saturday Story Prompts!

I also post pictures of works-in-progress and tutorials over on my Facebook page, so if you like what you see but want to DIY, come swing on by and ask questions! :)…

2016 Pricing Changes
-------------------------------
This year I am officially abandoning my chase of a profit margin and am dropping prices to match the new outlook! After a bit of a sea change, I realized I love my day job and I love making art more when I'm not trying to make money from it. So instead of trying to make a living, I'm just trying to keep the art horde stocked.

Thus prices have had the 'Labor' element removed and are now set at 2 x Materials Cost (so the item will pay for itself and a friend).
