This gorgeous creature was made by Maddy after she was inspired by the shape of a beer bottle left on the side one morning. He reminds me of Carwash from Willow the Wisp, but Maddy didn’t know the character so I think it is co-incidence.
This cat would make a great Halloween cat, though you might want to make him black in that case, and was lovely and easy to do.
First Maddy balanced a polystyrene ball on top of the beer bottle and glued it down on the neck. Once that was dry, she used PVA glue to stick pieces of red tissue to cover the bottle and the ball until all of it was covered. Then it was left to dry for a day or two, with a covering of PVA glue painted on top of all the paper bits to give it a glossy finish.
Maddy made some body parts from polymer clay; a nose, tail, paws, front legs and ears. Once the main body was dry, these were glued on to him with tacky glue and his features added with permanent black marker.
I think he’s purrrrrrrr….fect! 😉
