    I’m calling this project done! For now anyway. The figures are at least done. I can do the scenes later. Mind you most of these figures are about 1.25” tall. Tiny and cute.

    From the Jabba the Hutt Throne Room Action Scene.

    After 7 hours the #LegoMovie #SeaCow is done! And to celebrate I thought I’d do a Now and Then throwback to my very first #Lego #PirateShip. I think I was 7 but I’m not sure.

    I picked up this kit by #Bandai recently for practically nothing. I didn’t even know they made model sets of #pokemon! I put these together, hated the decal stickers, so I painted some of the details instead.

    My boss’ dogs portrait is done. He won a custom pet portrait by me from a silent auction we held at the office for charity.

    Just finished this Pirhana Prowler car from Mario Kart Wii using a discontinued Munny Mobile. Dr. Mario is the model driver until I finish doing a Rosalina Munny.

    The Broken Munny Mobile:

    I’ve been looking for a Munny Mobile for a while since Kidrobot discontinued it several years ago.  I had this Mario Kart idea for it and once I had found one, I took me a while until I finally got to making it.  It required adding sculpey and what not, and due to the size of the car, the sculpey had to be pretty thick, which requires more baking time.  I’ve baked sculpey directly onto regular Munny many times, but this was the first Munny Mobile I’d be baking on. 45 mins later I opened the oven door only to discover the thing busted open!  The inside of the car had expanding foam!  I guess to keep the structure of the hallow vinyl car from sagging in places.  Had I known that, I wouldn’t have sculpted onto it!  I couldn’t let the busted car go to waste.

    Originally I thought the insides of the car could be molten lava, so I painted it a yellowish-orange.  Then I had leftover paint in my airbrush and decided to paint the wheels.  This is what sparked the Easter ideas, because the wheels ended up looking like egg yolks.  I couldn’t make the car an egg, though.  The cracks weren’t eggshell-like.  So my friend showed me a picture of Cadbury eggs.  She had suggested that caramel ooze out of the cracks, which was something I already had in mind. So I figured it could be a candy bar mobile that ran over a pothole and busted his car and wheels.  

    And who or what would be driving this thing?  A Munny Peep, of course!  I’ve made an actual chick Peep Munny before using real sugar granules, and that stuff is a mess, not to mention the dyes bleed.  So I decided to cover the munny in sand and paint over it (many times) with different shades of whites and blues (mixed with pearl, for shimmer).

    The result is what you see. Luckily I was quickly able to find another Munny Mobile so I can do my original idea (sans sculpey).  We’ll see how that goes.
