I made a two-headed cat.


Then I decided I needed another one.


I kept track of how the second one was made.

First, I made a sketch and an armature out of foil.



Then I started adding the clay, and some wire to reinforce the legs.


More clay. At this stage it is just an ugly pink blob creature.


This is before and after baking. The eyes are glass beads that were set in place temporarily to ensure a perfect fit.


The eyes were removed, and the painting began.


And finally done!  Grin The eyes are glued in and the entire cat is finished with a matte varnish to protect the paint job.

These are great!

What kind of clay did you use?  I love the step by step you provided.  I am wanting to try to do some art dolls (I usually just do jewelry pieces) and seeing different ways of doing armature is really helpful!

That's so cool! I agree, the step-by-step is awesome & helpful! I've been wanting to do more clay play & this is such a cool inspiration piece.

I love them! Cheesy

That is gorgeous! I have to say I like the first one more than the second, because of the symmetry of it. But they're both beautiful. What did you use to paint it, acrylic?

Two kitties in one?! Love them both.
I like the pose of the blue ones & the faces of the red ones  Grin

Forgot to ask, how big are they?
