Happy Earth Day

Ever since Jenn and I started customizing art toys we have long since tossed around the idea of turning one of them into something a bit more functional. In light of this, and with Earth Day approaching, we set out to customize one of our favorite toys into a planter. From day one there was never a doubt that Marshall, created by the amazing 64colors, would be the ideal toy to do this with.

In the end, this piece ultimately was a huge departure from how we typically approach our customs. First and foremost, it marks the very first time that we have turned to acrylics as our medium. And while we prefer working with polymer clay, and stake no claim at being Da Vinci, we were both very pleased at the result and will at times return to the medium to truly grow as artists…just as our plant hopefully will!

beep! boop! bop!
