2. Get your grind on: To remove the vinyl that resides where the mouth should be, DLi$h used a Dremel with a router bit to carve the mouth out. Once the vinyl was removed, he finished it with a sanding bit to get all the excess shavings off.
3. Sculpey Time: DLi$h took a big chunk of Sculpey and then stretched it out to make an oval disk. He then rammed the disk into the Munny's mouth and formed it so that it wrapped around the eges of the toy to create lips. Once the lips were in place, he sealed the edges of lips to form a nice tight vacuum fit on the toy. That's one of the coolest things about Super Sculpey; It doesn't require any kind of adhesive. it basically holds to the toy by itself. Be sure to seal the edges of the Sculpey onto the toy so that the Sculpey has lots of surface area on the actual vinyl. It should almost create a suction to the toy surface.
5. Chill out: Let the toy come back to room temperature on its own. You should take this time to clean your hands, eat some yummy food, get a drink, and check your email.
7. Varnish (Optional): If you like to protect the paint surface while also getting that bling glow to your toy, spray some clear coat varnish on there. I've found that this Grumbacher Spray on varnish has been really good. I know the paint on varnishes can work well too, but out of expedience I always go spray on and I'm totally happy with the results. If I'm not happy, I just put on MORE!!
Note: Don't put TOO much varnish on. Like all spray paints, they always work better when you do thin coats.
I know you may be wondering how I did those Stitches on the head. Well fortunately I will be making an entirely separate tutorial specifically on the stitches, so stay posted!
