Paisley Fawn asked if i would customize a Smudge a long time ago. i had this little guy sittin around a while before i sketched on him. but, it was a really long time before i finally painted him. WonderCon and SDCC just got in the way. ha. the sewing is pretty straight and clean for such a small figure, very well made.
these are some progress shots i posted on Instagram. it went way better than expected. i had never painted fabric before, and that's what prevented me for jumpin on it sooner.
i sprayed him with a coat of matte finish to seal up the fabric a bit. then traced the pencil sketch with a Sharpie. other than that, i just hand painted with straight acrylic paints.
i call him a Squdge cuz he's a Squib version of a Smudge. he was a lot of fun to paint. you can get your own Smudge from www.paisleyfawn.com and follow Paisely on both Twitter and Instagram, just search @paisleyfawn.
