This is a little off the beaten path topic-wise, but I'm all pumped up about it, so you have to see.
Basically, KidRobot is an awesome store that, among many other things, sells blank Munnys. If you aren't familiar with Munnys they're basically little vinyl guys that are completely blank and you can decorate them however you want. Then, KidRobot has a Munnyworld contest, where you decorate them and submit them to the site. I've never made one before, but Feesh was all excited about it, so I decided to make one for the contest too... in pretty much no time I was all psyched up as well.
Basically, I totally forgot to take a picture of mine when he was blank, so here is the picture from wikipedia, which is probably fancier than anything I'd have taken anyways...
Krylon Spray Primer, and they dried all day. We got enamel paint, which worked really well (we used Testors) and it went on smoothly. I wanted him to look like he was made of brass or copper... as you can see, it is better to take their arms and heads off before painting them, otherwise the areas in the joints won't turn out neatly. It feels a little criminal to rip the Munny limb from limb, but trust me, he'll get over it.
here.. it's worth checking out, some of them are really amazing!
