Catnap by Catherine Fitzsimmons (@Jinx)

This was an experiment in many things. It was the first time I modeled at home, the first time I worked so small - approximately 1" x 2" plus tail - the first time sanding a sculpture after baking, and I tried a few new tricks painting it, as well.

It was supposed to be my cat Smoke, but it lost the resemblance in painting, so I'll just say it was inspired by Smoke, instead. I had a lot of fun with this and hope to do more.

Made with Sculpey III, sandpaper, and modeling paint.

This is so adorable! Definetly one of the cutest kitty sculptures I've ever seen--and I do see quite a bit of them out and about at stores. I really like the pose, and the stripes are really well done. He looks so smooth, I wanna pet it! I hope you work in Sculpey some more--I think you've definetly got a talent for it!

oooooo this is nice!!!!! Very nice modelling!

I love the colour tone u've used for the cat and the way u did the patterns! The tail looks somewhat off though, i don't know if it's the thickness or the angle it's coming out from? points at upper picture but if u look at the bottom picture it looks perfectly fine~! =)

I love the ears!! and i love the shape of the cat's body, they are special ;)

Very nice!
