Tropical Plumpkin by Magweno Tropical Plumpkin by Magweno
Tropical Plumpkin now available on Etsy!
www.etsy.com/uk/listing/185619…

This is the Tropical Plumpkin! Plumpkins are also known as ambling loaf dragons and love to be pampered. They are expert at finding the warmest spot in a house and will lie there for hours soaking up the heat. 

The tropical plumpkin has fresh, bright colours that will liven up your day! He’s definitely the leader of the pack, he’s confident and has a mischievous curiosity. You will need to make sure the lid to your biscuit tin is firmly stuck on or he’ll eat them all in one go!

I made this Plumpkin to test the body pattern and construction time, and as such he is being offered at a discount! 

He has a wire armature so he can be gently repositioned, and a soft squashy body. His head, wings and feet have been cast in resin from an original sculpt, and his body is sewn from the same material used for baby blankets - it’s so soft!

Plumpkins are 100% VEGAN FRIENDLY and Made in Scotland

Ahh, wow, I love the fur on this one. <3
Will you make more with multi-colored manes in the future?

How adorable! I think his little paws/feet have killed me because they're so cute. I know you probably sew the soft bodies, but what about the heads/feet/wings that aren't fabric? Do you make those as well?

All your little creatures are so unique and interesting; I enjoy seeing your creations appear in my watch!

Yes I made those too :) They were originally sculpted in polymer clay, then I made a mould of them from silicone and cast them in polyurethane resin. They're then washed, sanded, primed, painted with acrylics, varnished and attached to a wire armature in the bodies.

Thanks very much!

You're welcome!

And thanks for replying, I was very curious about the process.

Would you be able to link me to the shorter furs you use on the bodies for your dolls?

it's called minky, or cuddlesoft, or "smooth by shannon". googling any of those should find you a local supplier - I use plushaddict.co.uk and it's under their "plush>smooth" category
