This summer was a cat summer for me, because I've made so many cats :)
They are made in actual size, but our dog doesn't chase them.
Today I prepared a tutorial for you:
|You need: piece of clay or air drying clay like DAS clay,|
potter's needle or toothstick, brush and slip.
|Roll out cone-like shape.|
|Roll out another thiner coil and spheres like on picture.|
|Shape the biggest sphere into the cat's head.|
|Score and slip the head and the upper part of the body.|
|Score and slip the tail and attach it to the body.|
|Split one of little spheres. This will be cat's feet.|
Score, slip and attach them to the body.
|Other two little spheres flatten a bit and attach it on the face.|
|Make the eyes with the other side of the paintbrush.|
|Make tiny eye-balls and nose.|
|Attach them to the face.|
|Draw the mustache with a needle.|
|And our little cat is finished.|
This is how it looks from the front side,
|and the back side.|
|The hole in the bottom will prevent the cat from cracking|
during drying process.
|This is how it looks like after drying, bisque and glaze process.|
I decided to give away this cat to one of my blog followers (old and new ones).
Leave a comment on this post and I will pick a random lucky winner next sathurday.
