So I absolutely love designer vinyl toys, and after I watched a special on them on tv I got very inspired to paint my own. I didn't quite know where to start at first so I started looking around for blank toys, and wasn't too happy with most of the ones available, and then I went to Micheal's craft store and they had their Valentines decor out and I happened upon a blank bear with some stickers and a marker. I thought to myself this will be perfect, so I bought it, without a design in mind. It sat in a box of supplies for a few weks, and then I saw an awesome Sunny Buick design, and realized I had seen a t-shirt design that would look neat on the body, and mixed in a few of mt own ideas. And it was complete!  Grin











Sorry about the sunbleached-ness of the photos.
Thanks for looking!

Currently interested in doing a personal swap, I'm thinking retro-look/rockabilly clothing. Let me know if you'd be interested. ^_^

That is so unique. The pattern suits the pink colour of the teddy very well.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

Thank-you, I think that's part of why I picked that design.  Smiley

That turned out really awesome, the vinyl doll stuff I've done hasn't come out nearly as cleanly

Thank-you!  Q-Tips, wooden skewers, and the wrong end if a paint brush are very helpful tools to get nice clean lines.  Smiley
