Darumao Sculpts!

Darumao is coming to you soon! Available in 6 candy colours and black and white blanks. I'll also do up classic red/gold darumaos along the way. Everything is hand cast in resin and hand painted with acrylics with a matte seal finish.


Did these concepts at work for a potential Overwatch toy project with Blizzard. Unfortunately nothing came out of it.. which is a pity. These lil' guys are pretty cute.
