Tonie – something a bit different.

I was recently contacted by a fellow on instagram who wanted something painting as a gift for his daughter. He explained to me that what he wanted painting was a thing called a ‘tonie.’ I had never heard of these before, considering I do not have children though, this is not surprising.

What the device does is enables you to record a message onto it, which can be played back to the child at any time. They are customisable too, so I was asked if I could paint it to look like his daughter.

I had to ensure that both the paints I use and the varnish are ‘child friendly’ first, once that was established, I was more than happy to have a go. Here are the results:

It was nice to paint something different too – I’ve never done anything like this before, and I do enjoy a challenge.
