I did a new Munny for this year's Christmas exchange. Once again it was an alcohol theme since that seemed to get the highest participation numbers.
The execution looks pretty simple as far as colors go, but it took me a while to get all the elements in place. Pieces of the vinyl needed to be cut before they were then built up with Sculpey. The forested areas were created using trees from a modeling kit. Then the whole Munny was spray painted a gloss black. Using detail tape, I taped off a grid on the Munny and sprayed the whole thing again only this time with matte black. Then, by removing the tape, I had protected stripes of the gloss black.
I will say the taping didn't work so well over the forested areas, so the effect is somewhat muddied. With the black areas done, I simply went over all the recessed areas of the landscape with a gold metallic acrylic. Let me tell you, metallic paints blow. I had to apply so many coats of it to get it to cover in a solid coat—it's just so watery. But I think my patience paid off and the effect is nice.
Here you can see my Munny in front of the Earthquake bottle. I got all my inspiration from the colors and techniques used in the packaging. I think they really go well together.
Below are some pictures I took of my favorite Munnys from the exchange, each in front of their respective bottle (or bottles) of alcohol.
