Having created a few of my wooden toy prototypes, I wanted to try creating other toy figures. My friends Kristine and Sean own a dessert company called “Crème Caramel LA“, and they make the absolute best Crème Caramel (Chilled French custard) and Hot Bread Pudding. They also have a cute little mascot named “Dapper”.
Dapper was a perfect candidate for being made into a toy, so I figured I would give it a shot and surprise them. I was able to use a few old techniques as well as try out some new ones to get him looking right. Since Crème Caramel’s color scheme is black and white, of course I had to paint “Wooden Dapper” in black and white as well. Here is how he turned out:
Kristine and Sean liked “Wooden Dapper” so much, that they named a bread pudding in my honor. Awesome!
