Miniature 1:12 Cat sculpture - Tangled in blue by Pajutee Miniature 1:12 Cat sculpture - Tangled in blue by Pajutee
A special request commission cat sculpture in miniature 1:12 scale -- created by hand using polymer clay with delicate wire support in legs, neck and tail.  Fashioned in a playful, flip-flop pose - this cat was made to be showcased in a client's custom miniature roombox vignette (published in Miniature Collector magazine).  After the sculpture cured in the oven, it was painted in acrylics and dressed in a permanent coat of alpaca/silk fibers and flock.  Detailing in fabric inks.  Shown here alongside Scrabble game pieces to give you an idea of actual size.

I showed this too my dad and it took me 2 more of your deviations to convince him that the cat was fake not the scrabble pieces! Very good job!

I sorta' like the large scrabble pieces story -- wouldn't that be something to get them in that size *wink*

Awesome, the DD is indeed well deserved!

I have a question: if it is not a trade secret, can you tell me how you managed to make the fur? I am a newbie in modelling, and I've been wondering how to deal with fur for quite a while :D

I know you must've already gotten a ton of messages like this, but I hope you don't mind me saying that I would never have guessed that wasn't a real cat without you pointing it out. The likeness is seriously amazing!

That is my aim when re-creating an animal in miniature scale ~ the more believable to the viewer, the better.

Initially I thought you made giant scrabble tiles for a normal cat. Shocked to see that it's the reverse! :O

I didn't realize it was a sculpture until I saw the title. You have an amazing eye for detail and on such a tiny scale. This is incredibly realistic looking. Congrats on the dd.

While I have always been completely amazed at the detail of miniatures, seeing this cat truly tops it all.  The extreme detail and lifelike qualities of the cat are beyond reproach.  I shall herewith decide this is a REAL cat and you simply made gigantic scrabble pieces to let us THINK it was an astounding sculpture :happybounce:
