How To Custom Blind Box Toy?

Base Toy Selection

Conceptualize Your Design

Before you start customizing, it is important to have a clear concept. Consider the following points:

  • Theme: Decide on a central theme for your blind box series. It can be anything from mythical creatures to futuristic robots.
  • Character Design: Sketch out different characters that fit your chosen theme. Consider their shape, color, and unique features.
  • Series Consistency: Make sure all characters in the series have a consistent style to make the series cohesive.

Choose Your Base Toy

Many artists use blank DIY vinyl toys, such as Kidrobot's Munny or Superplastic's Janky series toys. These toys provide a blank canvas and are perfect for customization. Consider the following when choosing your base toy:

  • Material: Choose toys made from materials that are easy to work with, such as vinyl or resin.
  • Size: Smaller toys may be customized faster, while larger toys provide more space for intricate details.

Prepare and Customize

Preparation is key to a smooth customization process:

  • Clean the Toy: Wipe the toy with a damp cloth to remove any dust or oil.
  • Prime the Toy: Apply a primer to create a smooth, paintable surface, which helps paint adhere better and prolong its life.

Start customizing:

  • Base Coating: Apply a layer of primer to cover large areas.
  • Detailing: Use smaller brushes and markers to add details after it is completely dry.
  • Sculpting: If adding 3D elements, sculpt them separately and adhere them to the toy with a strong adhesive. Paint these elements after they are firmly affixed.
  • Layering: Build up layers of paint to add depth and texture, letting each layer dry before adding the next layer.

Finishing Touches

  • Sealant: Apply a clear sealant to protect your design, choosing a matte or glossy finish depending on your preference.
  • Packaging: Design unique packaging for your blind box toys, which could include custom boxes, stickers, or even themed inserts.

Share and Sell

  • Social Media: Show your custom toys on social media platforms such as Instagram and TikTok.
  • Online Marketplaces: Sell your blind box toys on platforms such as Etsy, eBay, or your own online store.
  • Toy Conventions: Participate in toy conventions and art shows to attract a wider audience.
