Minion! A Before And After
I've done 3 minions already. Finally got a chance to do a purple one for my son. Thought it would be cute to see them side by side. The purple minion's hair is cotton candy. Will definitely need to find a new medium for the hair. The cotton candy started to wilt after an hour or so. By the next day it melted to almost nothing. Kinda cool! But I can't do that to a client.
