Inspired by a craft swap project which encouraged the use of dual mediums, New York artist Sarita Maria decided to take the classic Mr. Potato Head toy and recreate him in the image of Sir Spudnik, Potato Head’s Victorian counterpart. But Maria didn’t just design a steampunk variation, she literally covered an actual Mr. Potato Head toy in metallic or brass-like materials.
Sarita provides a step-by-step look of the process over at her Instructables page. She also created a few goodies to go along with the project such as a wild west-style wanted poster and even a DaVinvi-esque design manual.
