In my last post I mentioned that my mother, after seeing the latest
Munny I customized, gifted me a Trikky (which is the cat version of a
Munny). I've always wanted a Trikky mainly because I wanted to make a
Cheshire Cat custom toy (which I did and later came to regret it terribly), but when I finally got Trikky I was a little
unsure of what to do with it.
Trikky and Munny are clearly different; Trikky's head is HUGE, but the
cat ears are hard to maneuver around. It's body is more stout than
Munny's so it's hard to sculpt around it's midsection. But the best
thing about Trikky is that when you're all finished with the sculpting,
painting, and varnishing it so much easier to put back together than
Munny is. I had plans for what I wanted the next Munny to look like, but I had to scrap them because Trikky's physicality didn't lend itself to those plans. But nevertheless, this turned out very well in my opinion and was a great challenge sculpting wise. I went out on Friday and bought a lot of Sculpey clay and I can't wait to use it.
For now, I think I'm gonna take a little break from Munny's and Trikky's although I doubt this break will last long. I have some drawings to finish, some shows coming up in August, and some projects for BGF just around the corner.
