Rabbit That's Kidding

MunkyKing is very populer art toy shop in California / Los Angeles.
They will hold DIY PUSHER SHOW in 26.Marty - 12.April.
This PUSHER of art toy was designed by Thomas Hans. it's cute custom base sculpture.

I received the offer from MunkyKing. then I decided try to make my PUSHER.

This is the Original PUSHER.

as for me, I planed this Rabit type PUSHER.

There seemed to be a wide mouth in this sculpture when I saw PUSHER for the first time.

I dismantled all original parts. PUSHER is composed of such parts.
Left parts are parts of the face that can be exchanged.

Modification of PVC (vinyl material) is difficult.
Then, I decided to start from work to replace this PUSHER with the resin.

Preparation for operation first of all. The tear off along dotted line is drawn.

It cuts it with a cutter and an electric saw at a dash.
It seems to have dismantled a Thanksgiving turkey.

The head was cut into 2 parts. And, the body was divided into 4 parts.

Cut parts are sunk in silicon.
The silicon of the mold will be completed in about almost 12 hours (over night).

The resin is reproduced from this silicon type only once this time. Therefore, it's very easy to make silicon mold.

Original parts are pulled out from among the silicon mold. The amount of the content is measured by water.
Because PVC is a midair, the amount of the content is little.

Because mold is used only once, it's comfortable. hahaha
It doesn't worry even if the resin leaks somewhat. hehehe

These are reproduction of the resin that this pulled out.
It's low accuracy and there is no problem because there is no influence in modification even if air enters or there is somewhat gap.

"Softer PVC" was able to be replaced with "Harder resin" by this way.

Then, let's rebuild the reproduction.
it's very simple. A temporary detainment is done with quick glue in the beginning.
It undergoes plastic operation with the polypatty after that.
Bonding improves when Quick Glue is put in the polypatty a little.

One foot was cut at this stage. And, the foot was lengthened with the styrene board and the patty.
Moreover, the mouth cuts out to open it greatly and undergoes plastic operation on the intraoral with the styrene board.

Because the shape of an original arm did not match to my design, then I decided to make original arm. A plastic stick is used for the core. And, it undergoes plastic operation little by little with the polypatty.

The polypatty is a patty with high liquidity. However, when stiffening starts, it becomes a grainy. The bindieye like such a starfish can be done as a result.

The surface was cleaned with about the 400th sandpapers, and the body became such shape.
Parts of the ear and small parts such as tongues and teeth are made from the styrene board.

I made the plinth.
Concrete is put in the core and weight is adjusted.
The first surfacer was spread.
It becomes easy to find the ruggedness by surfacer of the gray.

When the ruggedness is found, the sanding is done. And, Surfacer is spread again. This repetition is done several times.

This is the 2nd Surfacer works.

It is easy for Suefacer of the gray to find the ruggedness. However, the color darkens when a light color is spread further.

Then, white surfacer is sprayed on surfacer of this gray.

The whole content of the work of pincers is imaginable in this.

Painting works.
I love to use TAMIYA COLOR (Acrylic)
It's cheaper, but there are a lot of colors and nice colors.

Masking was done dividing into some. It colored with the airbrush.

and these are finished "Rabbit that's Kidding"!!
wowow GROSSSY!
I think... many American love to grossy toys... hehehehe

I like this angle best!

Is the rabbit just going to be a one and done deal for the MunkyKing show or are there any future plans to produce more for sale to collectors like myself? This is absolutely breathtaking!!!
