About This Class

Hello! In this class I will show yo the whole process of creating a designer toy sculpture. I will show you how I sketch my character and what I have in mind when I´m designing a character that will me molded and casted to create reproductions. And I will also show you the whole process of sculpting the head, the body and the accessories. And, finally, I´ll show you how I paint it. By the end of the class, you´ll know everything you need to know to create your own designer toy. If you´re interested in making reproductions of your toy, in Part 2 of this class I will show you how to create the mold and cast your toys using resin. So join me, and let´s start making designer toys!

If you want to see some of the toys I´ve created (and even buy one) you can follow me on Instagram @sandrabowersart or visit my website www.sandrabowersart.com
