A Little Stranger

Here’s a few pictures of my custom 3″ Dunny, ‘Applehead’. Applehead began life a production Dunny, I started by stripping him and painting with a white cellulose primer, all the colour work was done in acrylics and sealed with matte lacquer, with the ‘apple’ being finished with layers of full gloss lacquer, with metallic and pearlescent powders mixed in so it has a lot of depth. I made the vines from wire and some already tiny fake leaves that i cut down further.

The base is a clear acrylic oval painted purple on the underside and polished around the edge. The foliage is varying grades of model makers grass/stones and soil, with long tufts of grass dotted around. His little mushroom friends were sculpted from fimo.
