  1. From the album: Mini Animals

    Meet Skittle.. he's the resident squirrel in the San Franciscan's tree. I picked him up back in August from IGMA artist Teensyweensy13 on Ebay. He is one of the pieces she used to get certified as IGMA and he is adorable. He has a lovely expressive face and his head even turns for cheeky poses. You can see more of him on my blog
  2. 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....
  3. From the album: Mini Animals

    For scale. The tail of the original Schleich model was removed and a new pose-able wire one attached. This project nearly sent me blind.. I'll need a magnifying glass for the next one.
  4. This is a 1:12 British Shorthair Cat I finally got onto my ebay store. I would post a photo of my inspiration but it was from a cat breed encyclopedia. http://www.ebay.com/itm/111333800675

    Top Hat Hedgehogs

    From the album: Scenes & Other Minis

    A friend of mine requested that I make her a mini hedgehog waring a top hat. I ended up making 5. XD Read more about them on DeviantArt.

  6. From the album: Works in Progress

    New techniques in felting and antler creation AND new glass eyes make these mounts much fancier than version one.

  8. From the album: Country House - Renovated

    Meet Angi (short for Angelina) and Woody (short for Woodstock). Angi is a little girl with fragile legs. She cannot stand on her own, but if you hold her up, she can miraculously tap dance on the the floor - or preferrably a tin tray. She likes to spell her nickname Angie without the "e," as she is not afraid to be "different." Her best friend Woody is a raccoon who helps her out, as she cannot get around very well on her own. My friend Ann takes care of both Angi and Woody, who have many sleep overs together.
