I love customizing vinyl toys. Here is my latest creation inspired by my beloved cat Lucy. The customization is done on a Hello Kitty Series 3 toy I purchased from Urban Outfitters that I removed the paint from. I used acrylic paint.

Other Side

This is what the original looked like out of the box. I removed the paint with acetone, sanded with 400 grit sand paper, and then primed it with krylon spraypaint in a flat white.

I would love to hear anyones thoughts and suggestions, or of any techniques used to strip off existing paint.  Smiley

If any one is interested here are some links to other custom toys I have posted in the past
