I think this is the cutest thing I have seen in a long time. Brett is on friend on face book and he is a great artist. I tried to buy a Munny...it's a toy you can paint on. They were out of stock. I couldn't stop thinking about it so I made one to paint. It's Brett's design he gets full credit but I had to try and make one. I made mine from air dry clay and it's similar because I found it soooo precious.

Here's another photo of Andy since the flesh tone was done and his blush is back. Tomorrow the eye brows and just a touch of Jack Sparrow eye shadow! Then some matt varnish and a couple days in recovery...and back home for Andy! (he keeps winking at me)
Something new...a customer of mine is a ventriloquist and asked if I could fix his life long friend. I said yes...then I sat hoping I could. First I sanded the old paint, then primed. Tried to match the skin tone as close as possible.
It was done originally with an airbrush, it's brand new, never been used! I was given my air brush on my birthday...1994! I"m afraid of it. I take it out and mess with it, point it in mid air and pull the trigger back and fourth...then I place it carefully back in it's pretty little foam lined case and slowly close the lid. Sick Huh?!!!
Long story short, I'm painting "Andy Woodrow" with out the aid of my precious gifted air brush! He's coming right along and I think by Tuesday he should be ready to sit on his best friend knee once more. It's been fun, I'll post a final pic of Andy after the mat vanish is applied!

The dragon is slowly taking shape. I work on these in my barber shop between hair cuts. So if the shop is busy, it takes longer to finish a dragon!
I fill in his skull with aluminium foil. (it also keeps the aliens from reading his thoughts, Ha Ha)
