As far as I know, Ana made one for Torben, but it was before I joined the forum.
Then she worked out how to make a mould, and now she can make more of them, even if I am sure it must be slow and difficult work.
Then she hand paints them, so not two are completely the same, - just like nature Very Happy

As an owner of one of Ana's Takins the only thing I can say is that it is perfectly done, the dimensions and the detail on each of the areas of the body are incredible real. It is a master piece.

This and Ana's Bongo are must have for the real collectors of animal figurines as they are the best I had ever seen.

Hope Ana will keep making this amazing animals for us.

I fully agree !
Only not that Ana will continue making these two, almost like a factory Wink
Hopefully Ana will say: "So! I have made 20 (or 30 or 50), now I will make some new ones Very Happy"
To develop her skills, and for me to get more of her wonderful figueres

But fortunately it is not for me to decide Laughing

Ohh nice. I'm interested by a model (painted) but I must have more money (I have already two orders of 29 figures on MPV. So, my wallet is tired and I want to complete my wishlist of papo figures this month Rolling Eyes).  sunny

Thank you for the comments!!! Very Happy
Bongo is an option to consider, but I don't think for this year, and I also don't think I would do re edition of the exactly the same figure in this case. I will see. Smile

Great!
I was wondering - does the mold need to be recreated? how many figures can you do using one mold? unlimited or there is a limit?
I would be happy to try creating figures myself - I know it is hard thing to do and it can take ages till you have what you want. But I do want to try.

What do I need in order to be able to do this?
Also, If I want to remodel a figure - cutting and putting it up in a different pose of body shape - what do I need - i have read of epoxy - what kind of epoxy I need and which brand?
I would need to color the figure afterwards, Right? What color to use? where I can get it?
After I'll remodel and be satisfied with results. Can I create a mold out of the figure? what do I need for that?

I do want to try it - maybe I'll be able to create one myself :)
Thanks

From one silicone mould you can make up to 50 copies, in some cases less, that depends of quality of silicone. I don't know if we have mould tutorial on forum, but I'm sure we had some links to such topics, somewhere. Smile  Very Happy

Yes, epoxy clay, for example Apoxie is a good brand of this. It gets harder after 2 hours from mixing two ingredients. It doesn't need to be baked to get hard, that's why it's good to use it with plastic figures. Otherwise plastic can change shape during baking for example such clays as Super Sculpey.

@tqcenter2002 wrote:

I use acrylics, Vallejo colours. There is many other good brands of acrylic paints. I usually order them from online stores (with arts and crafts articles). You can also use pastels additionally, airbrush or oil paints.

Actually, if you want re sculpt, re position one figure for yourself then why copy? Smile Epoxy clay is hard enough and last as long as plastic or resin. You can have then absolutely unique figure in your collection.

If you customise someone's work it's usually forbidden to copy the result and sell copies. At least that's how it is in case of artists works, limited editions end so. I don't know if this rule is also for the toy figures, but I imagine that toy companies are also upset to see copies (even re sculpted or re posed) of their products sold somewhere.
Well, but that depends of how much of the someones work in in your new figure, if it's only about 10%-20% then it's in fact almost like you sculpted it from the beginning. I don't know the exact law in this case (how much percent you can use etc), I don't make moulds of remakes, unless it's remake of my own sculpture.

But if you create the figure from the beginning then it's a really good idea to make mould and copies! Very Happy If you need more details and tutorials I'm sure there was a topic about it with links to websites with instructions.

It's great to see this inspired you somehow. I would love to see your works! cheers

Thank you very much Ana!! You have been a great help  Applause  Very Happy .
I would be happy to see an "how it's made" tutorial on the mould for figures - I have looked for mould tutorials in the forum and could not find.

Your masterpiece can only lead for inspirations on others - Your amazing creations and others fabulous figurines arouse the urge to create one of my own. I have seen so many beautiful creations in this forum and I want them all :) But I can't :)

Thank you very very much for helping me understanding the process of figurine creation.
I think that the forum should have a tutorial section under homemade - that will help everyone to contribute.

Does the STS forum has a store for buy/trade homemade figurine?

Maybe something like - sponsoring a module creation and by that you'll get it cheaper then it cost. If everyone help creating one module and it cost the artist less then it should be to begin with - maybe the price will be lower for all sponsors. This is ONLY an idea and it is not related to me and what I am trying to do :) I am not that Good :) I know that there are excelent modouls artists in the Forum that I would love to get their figures - But it is bit hard to get there, if you know what I mean. Maybe if I'll transfer money to PayPal that can help them with the creation I'll get it priced off.

This is just a thought :) I think it can work. Help others to help you that always works.

Thanks again Ana for your help!
