Miniature Red Pomeranian sculpture 2012 by Pajutee Miniature Red Pomeranian sculpture 2012 by Pajutee
A miniature 1:12 scale Pomeranian sculpture created in September 2012 by hand using polymer clay with delicate wire in the legs, neck and tail.  The realistic red coat was applied layer by layer using hand-dyed wool, scissors, tweezers, and glue.  Tail is pose-able and is curled gently over the back.  Shown here with a tiny thimble for size reference.

It's adorable.  I had a Pomeranian and a Pomeranian/Spitz and I miss them so much.

He's a short legged version of my dog who is protesting as we speak; he doesn't want to take his medicine. Thanks for sharing this super adorable figurine.

Thank you!  Does he make a funny face?  My friend used to have to give her dog medicine every day, and it would make a terrible face with lips curled up like the taste was awful.

Thank you!  This was a very popular sculpt and I continue to get requests for Poms.  I do not have any immediate plans to make additional pieces, but then again who knows.  With the red-coats like this example, I have to hand-dip into acid dye the wool fibers to get the light to dark (I did not use a fabric ink application, paints, or chalk pastels to achieve the tones) >wink<

I would really love to get into making sculptures like yours and you have been my biggest inspiration could you pass along any knowledge/tips of where to start and how to continue building on skills?

That is a loaded question :D 

First of all, you might want to start sculpting what you 'know'.  What I mean by that, is what is familiar (i.e., your pet dog, cat, horse, or favorite animal or fantasy creature).  Keeping the pose simple at first until you learn the characteristics of the clay you are using.  Look at various armature building and find which one will work for the type and size of sculpture you want to make.  If the piece is miniature in size, you will need less support, however, if it is large and bulky with multiple layers of clay, you will need something with a bit of strength.  The armature is important to the piece and takes a bit to master it.   

Experiment as you become more confident in your skills.  Find good reference photos -- preferably anatomy & conformation, if you cannot work from looking at the real 'live' animal.  If you are wanting to sculpt a purebred dog, you might be able to find an illustrated manual (by breed) with detailed examples to work from by searching the internet.  If you are planning to add a furry/fiber coat to your sculpture (like this red Pom), it is helpful to find what the dogs shape looks like under all that fluff.  Sculpt your animal as if it were naked or hairless, then, when you add the coat with fiber and glue, and it will not look as bulky.  

If you are wanting to see how to add a fiber coat to your sculpture using glue, scissors and tweezers -- you can see the basic techniques for free on a site called: PaizleyPawz.com  (Schleich Ewe Sheep Tutorial)  ~ You can adapt this method to your freehand sculpture using a different fiber or yarn depending on what animal you are wanting to give a 'furry' coat.  Again, if you are working on a particular dog breed sculpture, you can also find reference photos on dog groomers sites for various breed haircuts and shaping of the coat. 

Practice makes perfect.  Do not compare your beginning skills/sculpts with those of other artists who have more experience, as it will only frustrate you.  Develop and hone your own 'signature style' vs. copying another artist.  Remember to take your time and have fun with it. 

Hope this helps to get you started on your artistic journey :D

Thank you so so much what fibers do you use and where do you get them? Oh and is there a special glue you use?

I use Aileens Tacky Glue, but most any craft glue will work.  As far as fibers, I have been collecting various kinds for over 25 years.  I mostly use alpaca, wool, mohair, cashmere, silk and cotton.  It comes in yarns that I comb out, and also hanks of raw fiber sold by individuals who sheer and process their own flocks.  You can find fibers like this anywhere on the internet, or in local shops that sell yarn.

I have German Little Spitz... Do you sell these? How would cost one German little spitz in white color? I have three pictures of my dog in my gallery, if you would like to see. . . :)

Your white spitz dogs sounds lovely.  Zwergspitz? Kleinspitz? or Mittelspitz? 
I do sell the majority of my miniature sculpture work, but I am not taking on any new commissions at this time.
If I have any opening for future commissions, I will post here on DA.

Thank you.  I have created several tutorials on creating realistic miniature animals and birds.  If you are looking on how to sculpt, paint, prepare & add a fiber coat -- I have a tutorial available on my website called How To Sculpt, Fiber & Flock an English Springer Spaniel.  If you are just wanting to see how the furring process is done and not how to sculpt sculpt your own works, I have a free tutorial which uses a commercial pvc model sheep and applying a wooly coat.  If you are looking for the free tut -- just send me a note with your email and I can send it to you :)

i already do clay sculpting, the fur part is what i was interested in <3 i wasn't sure if you had a tutorial and sometimes people get mad when several people ask them to make/if they have a tutorial is why i asked if you knew any good ones ^^
my email is ashleymorrell98@yahoo.com c: thank you so much <3

No problem.  I will send you the Furring tutorial.  You can adapt it by using different types of fibers depending on the animal you are making.  I use this same fiber and flock technique on my original polymer clay sculptures.
