Mr. Potato Head is an American toy consisting of a plastic model of a potato which can be decorated with a variety of plastic parts. This version was a prominent character in the Toy Story movies.
One of my clients wanted accurate eyes to replace the ones on this toy.
The eyes are joined on the toy and should be separate. Not to mention those weird eye brows....
I shot a photo of the toy and drew my template from it.
I sculpted the new eyes and brows in Strata.
These are the prints I got back from Shapeways. The mounting pins on the eye brows turned out to be too thin and risked snapping off.
I re-sculpted the brows with a thicker peg (old one in black above).
Painted parts with black vinyl pupils.
I made alternate eye brows so you can mix and match for different expressions
Not sure how to read this expression....skeptical?
MPH back home!
