Here’s a few pictures of my custom 3″ Dunny, ‘Applehead’. Applehead began life a production Dunny, I started by stripping him and painting with a white cellulose primer, all the colour work was done in acrylics and sealed with matte lacquer, with the ‘apple’ being finished with layers of full gloss lacquer, with metallic and pearlescent powders mixed in so it has a lot of depth. I made the vines from wire and some already tiny fake leaves that i cut down further.
See pictures of him in progress here
The base is a clear acrylic oval painted purple on the underside and polished around the edge. The foliage is varying grades of model makers grass/stones and soil, with long tufts of grass dotted around. His little mushroom friends were sculpted from fimo.
I’ve created six bunny and kitty brooches specially for Valentines day in pretty pinks, red and grey tones. Each brooch has a hand cast, hand painted resin face set into a plush back and finished with a safety clasp. The face is an original sculpt by me and is sealed with layers of clear lacquer for a durable finish. Each brooch comes in an organza bag ready for gift giving. Avaliable in the shop now.
Now in the shop is this limited run of six one-of-a-kind creature scarves. Get ‘em while they’re hot! Made from high quality fur fabrics and lined with soft polar fleece. Fastens securely with a button. Approx 90cm long, and nice and wide to keep you snug.
All six of these scarves are for sale in the shop.

New to the shop, Bunny-Slugs!! Each has been lovingly handmade with a lot of personality! They are weighted to stand unassisted. Edit: Sorry all the bunny slugs are now sold out.
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.
I have just added some new smaller versions of my Sea Creatures , Bunnypillars and Snow Bear prints to the shop. These new sized prints are the same high quality proffessionally printed artworks, just a smaller size to make them more affordable
8.5 x x11 inch prints are only £11

So I made this Flower-bunny brooch hybrid as a bit of an experiment, and before we went out on Friday me Alicia and Vicky took some ‘promo’ shots for the website. Not quite sure how effective they’d be as advertising but they sure were fun to take!
What do you think of the new brooch design – should i make some for the shop?
Heres some pictures of my two latest custom orders.
If you would like your own custom squeaky bun made please get in touch !
Squeaky buns are one of a kind art toys by Holly Stanway, each has a little squeaker inside, they love to be squeezed! *squeak squeak!*
Butters came with me, my sister and our friend Nikki to London on Friday. We went to the Natural History Museum, had lunch at Ed’s Diner and looked round the shops. It was super fun and we were lucky to have had the best weather there’s been for ages! Here are some pictures!

As always i am avaliable to make you a custom bunny brooch if you would like one in a specific colour.
Also, im very happy that i now have 100 ‘hearts’ on Etsy yay! When i changed shops (because i wanted my shop name to go with the new site) I was worried i wouldn’t sell anything at all because i looked like a new seller with no feedback, but now it look like the new shop is going well!
I have finished two more mini buns and put them in the shop. These are different to my last zombie one because i put a little squeaker inside so they make a cute sound when you squeeze them!
As with all my makings each one is hand made with lots of love and totally unique.
They are £22 each.
New to the shop are these zombie bunnies! RAAAR! The bunny face used in my brooches and mini buns is an original sculpt by me, which is hand cast, hand painted and sealed with layers of clear lacquer for a durable finish. Edit: sorry these are both now sold.
This morning i woke up to a garden full of beautiful snow and its continued snowing all day! This is very unusual for England , we usually have little bit and bobs of snow that rarely setlles for long. Things around here have pretty much ground to a stop, so my apologies to custom brooch buyers who will have to wait an extra day for me to get to the post office 0__0
So ive had a chilly but productive day of photos, computer stuffs and sewing, here are some wintery pics, enjoy!
I am now a completely freelance model maker and accepting jobs on both a professional and personal level.
Do you have a drawing or an idea you know would look super cute as a plush toy? Have you seen a bear or a monster i’ve made that you would love to own if only it was a different colour?
I would love to work with you to bring your ideas to life!
