Digitally sculpt a vinyl character

Cool collectable vinyl characters are popular with adults and children alike. The well-known Dunny - a small, customisable bunny by Kidrobot - is an example of what designers call a platform toy. A platform toy is sold blank, ready to be decorated by an imaginative artist.

Many figures are sculpted using wax, or oil-based clay, or polymers that can be baked in a kitchen oven. Great detail can be achieved by hand sculpting, and artists appreciate its flexibility and immediacy. Physical sculptures are not easily scaled, and it's challenging to produce highly polished, smooth surfaces.
