  1. From the album: Mini Animals

    I'm always enamored by the OOAK sculpted & flocked animals on Ebay, but I can never win an auction and they are quite expensive! So, I decided to buy a Schleich cat at the local toy store for the princely sum of $6 and flock it myself.... How hard could it be right?... Ummm it's hard! lol I have a real problem with overestimating my abilities and underestimating the skill required for a LOT of mini tasks. I'm sure there is a name for this affliction but I don't know what it is. Anyway, here is my first attempt. It took forever and involved quite a lot of attaching removing and reattaching combed wool to this tiny animal. I learnt a lot of things during this process. Mainly things I wouldn't do again... I applied way too much wool, I was going for coverage but it ended up creating the thickest coat ever on a cat (this Cat could live quite comfortably in Antarctica.) which made it incredibly difficult to shape, and ended up in a larger cat than is really true to scale... (I'm just going to call it a Maine Coon ).. Also, I used knitting 8 ply Merino wool which when combed out is quite curly. I did this to keep the budget down, but next time I would use specialty combed straight wool for this process.. It's expensive, but the result is superior and for the amount of hours spent on this project.. I really should have bought it. I also still need to work on the ear hair a bit and use some pastels to colour the nose & lip area. I also need to define the claws a bit more and perhaps some shading inside the ears. I can see another haircut may be in order also. Overall though, pretty happy with the first effort. I see now why people sculpt their own animals.. You can put them into poses that aid furring and give more definition to the legs and feet. I will probably try to do my own soon, but first I have to figure out how to make eyes. Her colouring was chosen to copy my first ever cat, Susie.. she was a fat lovely old soul who never scratched me even when I put her in the toilet and closed the lid....

    Here is another way to really work those IKEA doll beds. Like I mentioned in another post, I am off to IKEA soon to get a little something for my "furmily" to have that might keep them out of my dollhouse builds. Hey...I can dream, can't I? ;)

    IKEA Doll Beds

    From the album: Miscellaneous Minis

    Here is a great idea for those of us that have our little furry friends help with our mini builds. People in Japan have started a trend of using IKEA doll beds as beds for their cats and small dogs. What a clever idea! Next trip to Cincinnati I am running to IKEA!

    Loving the addition of the glass eyes. Having second thoughts about these particular antlers. May have to redo them due to bubbling in the polymer clay.
