As I’ve mentioned before when writing about Disney’s Vinylmation figures, it’s possible to buy blank bodies which you can then customize however you want. Well… talented people can customize them. I’ve got no artistic skills whatsoever, so any attempt I made to design my own Vinylmation would be a crime against plastic.
But other people have made a lot of great figures, including several by my sister, which I’ve featured here before. A few months ago, one of the members of the Vinylnation.net website was offering to do custom “paint spatter” vinyls in the colors of your choice. The effect he created was really cool, and I asked him to do one for me.
Here’s the figure I asked for, a black-bodied Mickey with spatters of red, gold, and a little white. I was very happy with how it came out — the effect is really cool and it makes for a very individual look. That’s the cool thing about the paint spatter technique, you know that even if the painter were commissioned to do another figure in the same colors, it’d be impossible to make two of them exactly the same. This is a one-of-a-kind figure.
Adding to the cool, he even customized the box the figure came in with a few paint spatters. It’s a wonderful job, and I’d highly recommend his work. If you’re interested in commissioning a figure from him, you can find him at the Vinylnation.net website, where his handle is “disneyfan168″. Thanks again!
