Happy painting all!!
Welp! Juggy number 3 arrived!
& before prepping even ONE more Juggy, I washed him off & hit him with some primer. Boy am I glad I did too!
Because he had the same sticky reaction as the first two!
This guy even had it across his neck & face!
Of course Rayvin & Jen were dumbfounded. They are awesome though, & certainly get an A+++++++++++++++++++ for customer service!!! Jen & Tom finally tracked the issue down to a bad batch of resin. & Jen made sure to wash & prime the next Juggy heading my way to make SURE he's a good boy!
Just to rule out that it was not possibly anything I was doing, I ran these horses through the mill! I thoroughly washed in warm water & dish soap, sanded multiple times, Dremeled down the pour on one, covered the spots in gesso, changed primers, scrubbed with alcohol & mineral spirits (& washed again of course), finally I even stripped one in Easy Off: You can see on him now that the troublesome spots are yellowed as compared to the rest of the horse. I was going to try soaking the stripped one in alcohol, washing, & spraying in new primer, but by that point, I'm pretty sure this isn't anything I am doing!
So, now the 19th day of NaMo, & I am waiting for Jugy number 4 to land.
The luck I seem to have had for bad Juggies is apparently pretty fantastic according to Rayvin.
I must say though, the view was pretty while it lasted! Accidents happen, & this was totally out of Rayvin or Jolt's control, so I am not fussed about it! I won't be finishing NaMoPaiMo this year though.
Instead I have decided to entertain myself & have a NaMoPai-NO, lol! I can't officially do NaMo since I am signed up with a red roan Juggy, but I still want to play, so I am doing my best to paint my Upton a dapple black before month's end, just so I can "I did it" for another year!
What a wild ride this has been! 🤪 If you happen to have a Juggy with any issues, Rayvin & Jen ask that you please contact them!
I hope you all are having a much more successful NaMo, with much better behaved ponies!
Happy painting all!!
