Custom Munny: Egg-Head by Meagan-Marie Custom Munny: Egg-Head by Meagan-Marie
Original/Egg-Head Munny

I wanted to try my hand at a totally original custom creation, to see where my imagination took me when not limited by a character concept. I love when custom designers heavily modify Munny anatomy, so I decided to lop off the top of its head and create a bird nest/birdbath out of the two pieces.

I started by spraying the money with (ridiculously overpriced!) textured spray paint to make it look like stone. It took forever to dry, resulting the project lasting most of my weekend. From there, I glued a layer of fake moss to a base and the lip of each half of the head, and decorated the stand with flowers and twigs. I purchased the fake eggs and bird from JoAnn Fabrics, where I also found a gel substance that can be used to mimic water in silk floral arrangements. After heating the gel up it becomes liquid, which allowed me to pour the substance into the birdbath to finish off the figure.

The gray is a spraypaint designed to look like stone, so it has flecks of lots of different colors on it.
