Here’s a few more kitties I’m finishing up. Since taking these photos, they’ve all been glazed and are now nice and shiny. I get a little obsessive sometimes. If it takes 5 coats to get that glossy coat, then 5 coats it is!
I’m really excited for the “strawberry kitties” too. Just combining two of my favorite loves…food and cats! Before I added the seeds, they kind of resembled tomatoes. My gears are turning now!
This here’s a little teeny tiny robin upside down. Soon to be made into earrings! I hand-sculpt & paint each one until I go cross-eyed and need a snack break. I also have some cardinals along with various other colors. I realized I haven’t had earrings in my shop in a while. That needs to change!
I’ve been working on a fresh batch of kitties for the past few days. These ones are a bit bigger than my regular kitty figurines, and are made of hard plastic (instead of poly clay)! I cast all of these from that kitty silicone mold I made earlier. I’m loving that I can make a whole bunch quickly leaving more time to play around with some new ideas. Namely, their eyes. I love the simplicity of the black dots on my smaller kitty figurines, but sometimes you just want something a little more expressive. Plus, if I wanted to do something like red eyes, simple dots just looked a little too demonic to me.
The shop is closed right now while I work on a few order stragglers and play around with some ideas that have been simmering in my brain. But hopefully soon I’ll have everything back up, including this batch of kitties listed. Lots of picture taking needed.
I think besides just sitting pretty on a shelf, this size kitty would make a nice wedding cake topper. Especially on a larger cake. I used to have kitty cake toppers in my shop, but as usual, one project falls to the back burner when you’re working on another! I also got a revived obsession with Minecraft again, so that’s been eating some of my time.
Can you guess who these kitties are supposed to be?? I hope so! With the whole Sailor Moon revival with the 20th anniversary, I’ve had some cutesy ideas floating around in my head.
Say hello to Luna & Artemis! I’m not sure yet if I want to sell them as a set or separately. These ones I think would make cute cake toppers. Just add a little tulle veil and maybe a top hat and we’re good to go. Or not! I also have an idea involving the Sailor Scouts, but I’ll save that for another post.
And here’s a real kitty. This is my “garbage kitty” Eevee. She’ll sit in any boxes I put near the garbage can. Garbage kitty does not approve of these empty wine bottles.
I’ve been sitting on a new design for a little while now. It was somewhat difficult to get it just how I wanted it to look. Teacup & saucers are harder than they look! But now that it’s all finished, I’m having trouble parting with it. That’s the problem with new designs. They’re my babies! I can’t bear to see them go!
I would love to make more with other types of kitties and teacups with different colors and patterns. I think that would be adorable. This guy is only about two inches high, but I would like to make even bigger ones too.
For now, I’ll keep staring at this one I have trying to decide if I should part with it, or at least give me the motivation/pressure to make more soon!
