Vinyl Toys!

Here's my first attempt at painting vinyl figures! This little monkey glows in the dark and was bought from Toy2R at comic-con a few years ago. You can buy your own BabyQee here for $10:
First a sketch was drawn of course...
...then, the parts I wanted to glow were covered with stickers. I used a spray on primer & then painted the rest by hand with acrylic paints. As a last step, I sprayed on a glossy finish.

Next, I painted a vinyl figure I bought at Urban Outfitters made by Munny world. Mini Foomi was a the perfect shape for Marco P. the main character in my thesis project, so of course I couldn't resist making a mini-Marco! You can buy your own Munny here for $9.95:

I love crafts like this! You should try something with perler beads next. Make a pixelized version of your character. :)
