I’ve been away from the toy customizing game for a while now, think the last custom toy I did was back in October of 2010 for NYCC! However, I was invited to join a 30th Anniversary Dunny Trade, in celebration of artist Tim Munz’ (aka timself) 30th birthday.
Artists participating in the trade included:
Gomi aka Another-Waver
Seeing this roster of artists and the caliber of their creativity, I was quick to sign on and created this custom 3″ Chinese “Rice Bowl” dunny, based on the design of a traditional Chinese rice bowl:
This was a new experience for me as I never dissected a dunny before (cut off the head and ears) and used Super Sculpey to shape the head bowl. I also used different painting techniques to achieve the design I was looking for, and gave it a glaze to give it a more porcelain look:
Accessories: it comes with a small bag of rice, 2 types of chopsticks (1 traditional brown, 1 fancy matching colors), and a holder that fits into the left hand of the dunny and the chopsticks stick to it via velcro:
I hope whoever gets my dunny likes it, if not, I’d be glad to keep it in my collection! More pics available at my Flickr: AW177 “Rice Bowl” Custom 3″ Dunny
