    [EDIT] So I had trouble living with myself for breaking my moral code.
    Therefore to Transformer-ize this thread and make amends, I have painted a Transformer ornament! :) 
    See post #2, please!

    I vowed to Never post a non-TF custom on a Transformers site. Just didn't seem moral.
    Well, 'Tis the season and all, so never say Never. :(  :) 

    We had some Christmas ornaments to decorate at work, so I chose this dollar store ceramic Santa Claus.
    It's fairly blank so leaves room for creative painting.

    I thought about making an Optimus Claus, but didn't want to go the Animated route and ruin his proportions. So I chose this instead:

    Basic water acrylic paints & long handle (but fine enough) brushes. Done today at lunch.
    I'm happy with how he turned out.

    Now that I've done this once, next time I can easily customize a relatively round & pudgy G1 Transformer like Bumblebee.

    'Twill-be the moral thing to do. :cool:

    Yah, I know there's white ceramic kibble leftover, but I am happy how Bumblebee turned out, and relieved to make amends.

    As you can tell, the black paint was sparce, cause there wasn't much and 'twas drying.
    But I didn't mind the silver substitute colour.

    Merry Christmas, and Roll Out!

    i didn't click originally because i saw the non-painted version and thought "but that looks nothing like a spider", then i realized it has a Y, and you could color it.

    i like it. looks perfect in the tree. same with bumbles.
