Angel Ratty by DragonsAndBeasties Angel Ratty by DragonsAndBeasties
This was one of two memorial rats made on commission. This one is pendant sized and the other was identical but made larger as an ornament. More views of both rats here: [link] It's always sad to hear a ratty has passed, but I really love making memorial pieces. I love their little angel wings :)

Handsculpted by me from colored Premo Sculpey clay, about 1 inch tall, small details painted in acrylics

COMMISSIONS ARE CLOSED UNTIL MID-JULY.

QUESTIONS???
Please visit my FAQ page [link] before asking questions about techniques and materials. Just about every question I get is covered there. Iím not trying to be rude, I just get tired of answering the same questions over and over ^^;

How do you bake something like this? I mean.. It has no bottom, what part of this is flat? How do you put these in oven, eh? I suck at explaining this question. 8I

Question: How do you get the loop (the chain-connector thing) into the mouse's head? I've read your FAQ..but it didn't mention it at all really..

my guess is ( a gueess :3 for starters,) that if you leav a little bit of modeling clay,or whatever you use, out/off it, place the loop on, then put the chunk missing, back on. it will probs be how it was done ;p

My little Lilith <3

Lost her Sister Leeloo on January 10th, she passed away in her sleep and sadly after that Lilith's condition deteriorated. Poor baby ended up with a brain tumor and I had to have her put down. My first ever Rats and I miss my girls dearly. Hoping to get some boys soon though so wish me luck!

Can't wait to get these in the mail Becca, you did a great job, thank you! :thumbsup:

AWWWWWWWW

That looks JUST like my late female, Junan. </3

This is a photo taken of her a few days before she passed (of old age, peacefully, in her sleep) [link]

Then again, a white rat with a black hood isn't exactly uncommon. Still, it's sweet.

... And for the sake of show-and-tell, this was a video I took of her condition a few days before her passing :'c [link]

Faved <3 This is special to me.

Same here, this sculpture is special to me because it reminds me so much of my rat Muffin who passed away 2 month ago :'c She was 3 years old..
Her condition was pretty well though compared to your rat's condition, but she had issues with heavy breathing as well and you could see that she was old :< I still miss her, she was such a great friend :'3
