Fancy Rat sculpture rex rat by philosophyfox Fancy Rat sculpture rex rat by philosophyfox
This hunky chap was a long awaited commission! He'd been sat half painted on my shelf for quite some time after finishing sculpting him.

He is a mink rat, but he is a rather browny mink - rather than the obvious blue sheen. I don't know much about rat varieties, I am slowly learning there is more than simply brown, black and white though!

I am quite happy with this one, but I have noticed I need to vastly improve my feet, making them more organic. It was also rather hard getting his 'rolls' in without insulting his memory.

Polymer clay over a wire and foil armature. Painted with acrylics and sealed with Citadel Purity Seal.

Commissions of 5-7 inch rats like this chap start at £105 GBP

He is gorgeous. I just wanna pet him. :) The eyes and fur texture are brilliant.

Feet are one of the hardest things for me. They either look too cartoon simple or turn into weird monkey feet.
