Meet...the Cheshire Cat!
I created him by starting with a foam ball split in half for the base and then built up with foil from that to create the basic shape I was looking for.
From there, I covered the foil with Creative Paperclay® and formed the tail portion over a length of wire pushed into the base of the cat. I allowed this to dry for two days before proceeding.
I sanded gently before painting. I first applied the stripes using Luminarte Twinkly H2O's. This gives the Cheshire Cat a wonderful shimmer!
The final step was to add the distinctive toothy grin and spirited eyes using white paint (Sharpie paint pen) and black marker.
I just love the way he turned out! And he sits quite happily along side his friend, The Mad Hatter!
