Happy holidays, everyone! I hope you’re off work, eating everything in sight and washing it down with magnums of wine. I know I am (except the off work part).
Now that Christmas has past and I’m not going to spoil the surprise for any WUYS readers lucky enough to be friends with Jamie McCarthy (@kerfuffleblog), I can finally show you guys these great hockey toys she makes!
Shut up, they’re tiny hockey boyfriends! Aren’t they awesome?
Jamie starts with Funko vinyl toys (usually these ones) and adds to them with clay or epoxy putty, then repaints them by hand. Lastly, she makes the skates and sticks. They are all under 4 inches tall.
She has classics like Bobby Orr…
And someday, maybe even a whole team!
You can see more of Jamie’s process and finished pieces at whatakerfuffle.tumblr.com. Who else would cut the fangs off True Blood vampire Funkos to make Zetterberg and Dutsyuk?! That is art.
There are SO MANY and they’re not all hockey! Or boys! They’re all fantastic, I can tell you that. Add @whatakerfuffle to your Instagram feed to follow her work in progress.
Thank you, Jamie, for letting us share!
