Hello! My name is Stephanie and I have been customizing vinyl toys for a couple years now, but I've been doing art forever! I've done customs using Kidrobot, My Little Pony, Vinylmation, and Rose Art Doodle Budz. Of course I'm willing and excited to try any new mold! There are so many neat ones out there for sure. Check out the vinyl customs page of my website, and feel free to look around the rest while you're there!
Hey everyone! Wanted to share my latest custom projects with you. The first one is a mini Tokidoki Unicorno custom I call Nebula. I purchased the blank at the NYCC. To my knowledge, the tiny blanks have only been available at the big cons. But I am excited about the bigger Unicorno blanks available from the Tokidoki website! Anyways, I wanted to do something really pretty and just kind of mystical/ magical like. The beauty of the universe has always been inspiring to me, so I knew it would be the perfect concept for a unicorn. Legend has it that you can spot this little creature zipping about the cosmos if you have a telescope. She also likes to catch rides on the occasional shooting star.
The second custom I am sharing today is probably my most intensive/detailed custom to date. Created on the Vinylmation 95 mold is my custom Sugar Rush Racer! I absolutely love the movie "Wreck It Ralph", and the VM95 was too perfect for a Sugar Rush canvas. I created this one in kawaii style with inspiration from the Japanese poster of the film (which is actually called Sugar Rush). Materials used here are acrylics, Sculpey clay, glitter paint, Whipple, pearl beads, and a glossy Testors finish. I even used actual frosting tips to make the Whipple more delicious in appearance. A super sweet art piece! It was really exciting seeing this come together :).
I've been hard at work on some new customs, and here is my latest creation. She is a 3" Vinylmation created using Sculpey clay, acrylic paints, Swarovski crystals, fabric flowers, and a wooden base. Her add-ons are secured with mod podge (that stuff is solid!) and she is sealed with Testors glossy clear coat. I highly recommend Testors, you get a lot in a little can and it works great on non-porous surfaces (doesn't leave it sticky).
I've been wanting to incorporate more visual elements into my customs, and this came out great. Like my Nightmare Before Christmas custom, I really wanted to up the game on my customizing, so this was a great and fun challenge, one with results I am very proud of. I've been sketching up more ideas using these different elements, so I'l be sure to share my new creations!
Hey everyone! My name is Stephanie and I am an artist with experience in several mediums, including customizing vinyl figures. I've worked on everything from Kidrobot to My Little Pony and Vinylmation. Vinylmations are my favorite, it combines two of my favorite things, art and Disney. I'm new to this site, so here are some of my Vinylmations I've created so far. I've been working on more, so please come visit again and check 'em out!
