Spotlight On: Custom Artist Claudia

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

We’ve known Claudia for several months now. She’s a highly energetic vinylmation trader who frequently leaves comments on our site. We also always see her and her husband in line for the latest vinylmation on Friday mornings (like today!) Little did we know, she is also a great custom artist. Check out some of these great Retro Minnie and Mickey pieces she’s done.

This are very cool for a new artist. I really appreciate the time spent on removing the brushstrokes. Also check out the Swarovski crystals she used as the dots on Minnie’s dress. I also like Mickey’s google eyes. I found this picture of an old Minnie and Mickey, check out how well Claudia replicated them!
And check out Minnie’s hat. It’s made of wood and is removable! Just like the hat accessories from Disney’s vinylmations.
A week after we saw these at the trade show, she announced that she was finished her 9″ Retro Minnie. Check this out. Claudia said she spent 3 weeks going over it with the coating to make it look like this. It too has a removable hat!
But there’s more. Not only is the hat removable, but the is more mixed media. Her dress’s polka dots are added, and check out her eyelashes…
Those are three dimensional as well! Claudia says they were a pain to get just right. Claudia also has a youtube channel where she films a lot of her vinylmation, check out the following video she made about this piece.

Thanks Claudia for sharing these with us, and to all our readers, make sure you stop by and say hi to her when you have a chance!
