Mr. Jimmies - The Undead Doughnut (Classic Pink) Mr. Jimmies was a mild mannered doughnut, just doing his regular shift at the greasy spoon diner. One fateful night a police officer staggers in... green, incoherent, mumbling. Before Jimmies could get out a concerned "May I help you Sir!?" ... the officer chomped! Reeling back, bloodied and in shock, Jimmies realized his fate was sealed. The officer was one of the newly turned "undead".... To be continued... This is a limited edition, hand painted, cast resin sculpture from an original I made in polymer clay. Each one is meticulously hand painted by me, including all 104 sprinkles! Each figure is signed and numbered on the bottom. Please note, each one is hand painted and small variations do occur. For instance, each sprinkle color configuration will be slightly different. How unique and cute is that!? Read Less

Let there be foil! and wire! An armature is built to suport all the foil and clay and get the pose of the figure. Aluminum foil is added to bulk up the body of the doughnut. This saves sculpey and keeps the final product lighter. I wrap everything with super fine steal wire to give the soft sculpey clay something to grab onto. 

Here is where the actual fun begins... adding sculpey to the skeleton. I use regular super sculpey, but add a block of white and black to the mix to get a nice Grey. Regular super sculpey is translucent pink, this makes it hard to see fine detail on the surface. 
Base doughnut is baked. The base & legs are done. I baked after each limb was completed: 275 for 15 minutes. And let the sculpt cool down naturally while still in the oven... this prevents cracks. 

Mr. Jimmies screams - "GET ME OUT OF HERE!!!"
Baking the Zed at 275 degrees for 15 minutes. AGAIN!! 

Adding sprinkles. The sprinkles were added using sculpey after the base was baked & hardened.  Now this final version is taken to a local casting studio and a limited edition is poured.

This is #1 from the mold. Nice and clean, ready to be primed & painted.
One light coat of Car primer does wonders, and allows the acrylic paints to stick.
An airbrush is used for the frosting color. It is quick, and goes on smooth. All the rest of the coloring will be done by hand. 
Finished Mr. Jimmies the Undead Doughnut, Limited edition of 25, with 5 Artist proofs. Acrylic paint on cast resin.
