Miniature cat sculptures featured in this gallery were hand-formed using polymer clay over an armature of fine gauge artist wire. Each one-off sculpt was meticulously painted and delicately dressed in a soft, realistic coat of natural fiber (i.e., alpaca, cashmere, or silk blends). Spots, stripes, and rosettes were hand-painted in heat-set artist inks. Tiny whiskers/eyebrows have been individually inserted and secured with glue. Tails are wire-based and can be gently posed.
