Hooded Fancy Rat Sculpture by philosophyfox Hooded Fancy Rat Sculpture by philosophyfox
A (long awaited) commission that was finally completed, and mailed out to their new home today.

This has been a bit of a huge task for me - a lot of detail, and two rats together - it was a bit of a worry that they wouldn't hold together. Let's just hope they make it to their new home in one (or minimal ;) ) piece(s)!

I'm not going to dwell on any negatives - overall it was a satisfying project and I've learned a lot, and I had a good deal of fun making these chaps - which I feel is important.

Super Sculpey over a wire and foil armature, painted with acrylics and sealed with Citadel Purity Seal. About 80 hours of work.

They did arrive in one piece, and now occupy pride of place in our home. We are so pleased with them! The photos don't do them justice really - in real life they look even more incredible, and the marking etc are perfect,
