Sleeping Dumbo Rat Sculpture Face by philosophyfox Sleeping Dumbo Rat Sculpture Face by philosophyfox
A commission in a pose of the customer's request.

This chap was rather hard to do - white is a very difficult colour to paint!

Made from Super Sculpey / Sculpey Firm blend, over a wire and foil armature. Painted with acrylics and sealed with a matt spray sealant.

I absolutely love this! I wouldnt mind having one of my own! This is to die for and it is the sweetest thing I have ever seen, you should mass produce this pose and offer it as a commission piece, I would love to have my Rat sammy (who passed away a year or two ago) painted in this pose!

Thank you for your kind words. It is my aim, in the long term to produce a range of casts where customers can choose the paint job they would like. Once I have time!

It takes nearly all day - I try to break it up over a couple of days, so I don't go cross eyed!!!

This is lovely, so detailed and you got the ears just right. We have a little dumbo rat and those could be her ears!
