Who the heck customs a dog toy???... Apparently me.



I was at the a pet store recently with Butters to find him a good brush because he has been shedding like crazy lately! While in the dog toy isle I came across these "Bad/Good Cuz". I had seen these toys before when I worked in a kennel as a vet assistant, but hadn't given them much thought. For some reason they caught my eye and I thought "I need to paint those!" Vinyls, vinyl right? So I bought a few (They were actually pretty cheap. Depending upon size between $3-$10) After screwing up the 1st and a little more trial and error you can see what I came up with below. I found the surface to be kinda tacky. I had to wash them off twice before I could get the paint to really stick. I add some additional parts modeled out of polymer clay (Much like you would a munny) All in all these were pretty fun. I may make more in the future.
