Punkin Munny by MissNicka Punkin Munny by MissNicka
Well, this is my first Munny! I did the usual sculpt over using white Sculpy III, just on the head. I'm really pleased with him and I'm already working on the second.

*UPDATE* 4/11/09

This little guy won "Best Mini" at the Shoparooni Munny Show!
Awww punkin love!

Since I get so many requests for this little guy, I am now crafting reproductions of him. Visit my Munny page on facebook if you're interested!

Hi, very nice paint.  did you bake the sculpey with the munny? it doesnt melt down with the heat? Saludos!

Hello.
Yes, you can bake it at about 225 F, the melting point of the vinyl is 300, so it remains intact.

What brand of primer do you use

:iconmissnicka:
MissNicka Featured By Owner Jun 5, 2013
I was using the Krylon black spray primer, but they stopped making it in black. I've just been using their flat black spray paint since then and it works fine. The problem with a lot of primers is that they are thicker, and you lose detail. The flat black spray has worked just fine for me. I don't recommend brushing on primer.

This is really cool. I created characters like this about 8 years ago or so. Haven't really touched them since but this is pretty close to my original design.

Can I ask, may sound a bit silly, how do you use sculpey on munnys? I thought sculpey had to go in the oven >.<

:iconmissnicka:
MissNicka Featured By Owner Dec 10, 2012
It does. But the temperature Sculpy bakes at is lower than the melting point of vinyl. So, you sculpt on the figure, put in on a tray, and pop it in the oven. I usually bake it at an slightly lower temp than recommended, around 250. The vinyl does get a little soft in the oven, so you have to let it cool completely before you handle it. It remains completely intact.

Very cool, just started Munnys myself...any idea of the best way to sell them?

MissNicka Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2012
I get a lot of requests to purchase the work I have up here. I also do okay with Etsy. Mostly I make the best sales at art shows or artisan events. If you are designing a Munny in the style of a popular character then Ebay is your best bet, but in my experience custom work doesn't go over that well there.

You can order them online from Kidrobot.com
there is also a company that makes plastic figures, similar. Roseart Colorblanks. But I'd recommend the Kidrobot original figure since the vinyl takes different materials better and can go in the oven.

how do you cook it with the clay on it? with out the munny melting?
Reply
:iconmissnicka:
MissNicka Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2011
The melting point for vinyl is lower than the baking temp for Super Sculpey. I cook mine at an even lower temp for slightly longer- at 225f instead of 275f. The figure stays intact.

Reply
:iconmissnicka:
MissNicka Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2011
I use acrylic paint, and honestly I like the craft grade paint better than the artist grade acrylic for the munnys, but that just might be my painting style. I feel I can build up thin layers more easily with the cheaper paint. And don't forget to prime your piece before you paint it.

prime it with what? but thank you. you cook it with the clay and then paint it after?

Prime it with primer. Yes, bake it first, then let it cool thoroghly before priming
