Thought i’d share some picture of what the faces for my toys look like unpainted, just resin straight out of the mould. I always find it interesting to see other people’s work spaces so i wanted to share some pictures of mine.
Been working my way through some custom orders in my free time. Once they’re all finished up i have lots of ideas for new toys i want to make.
I think the little bear looks so cute next to one of my big plushes! He turned out soo much smaller than i imagined, he’s only 5″ tall
It makes me want to try making an even smaller one, The only thing limiting the small-ness is the joints, so if i can do away with them it will only be my nimbleness and eyesight keeping me from making a smaller bear
It was fun making a little bear but i think this project will be on hold for a while as i’ve got lots of custom orders to work on.
I keep my tiny custom bear by Catherine of Cayas Creations on my computer desk and he inspired me to try making a little bear myself. I used one of the small faces i usually use for brooches and the smallest joints i could find. I dont think i’ll ever have the tiny bear skills that Catherine has but he sure was fun to make!
I’ve just added this albino bunny to my shop – right in time for Easter! She’s made from super soft velvet with a bobbly faux sheepskin head and ears. She has long white fluffs coming out of her ears, which are pose able with soft-coated armatures inside. I carefully airbrushed over each joint and seam to give her an antique look. As with all my toys she is totally unique and one-off and for sale here Edit: Sorry, Albino Easter Bunny is now sold
This little bunny is a totally unique one-off art toy. She’s around 12″ tall(not including her ears) Her face is an original sculpt by me, I then hand cast each one in resin. The face had been airbrushed and painted before being sealed with 3 layers of matte lacquer all over and a further 5 layers of gloss on her eyes and lips. She has weighted feet and a weighted bottom and free moving teddy bear joints in her shoulders and hips so she can sit and stand unassisted. Her head is sewn on but still has enough movement to allow you to pose her easily.
Just updated my shop with a couple new custom bunny brooches. There are more for sale in my shop, or please get in touch if you’d like a custom one.
Yay! Thanks so much to everyone who voted for me, I made it through to the finalists!
I will resume normal blogging next week, i have been working on some exciting secret projects this wee, and some new alittlestranger toys! Have a great weekend!
