This was part of the commission I did for ~Kizzarina, her lovely cat Ayame was named after iris flowers (Ayame=iris in Japanese) because of her stunning blue eyes, so she asked me to make a couple of iris flowers as stud earrings :) they were a bit more difficult to do than I imagined, but I'm really pleased with the way they turned out.

The shape was kinda complicated and getting the colors to blend perfectly was a challenge XD but as always, the most difficult part was finding a balance between delicate thin petals and sturdiness. When I make flowers it's always a bit tricky to find out just how thin I can make the petals before they become brittle, but if I make them too thick they look clumsy. Oh dilemma. Actually when I finished the flowers I noticed that the petals were still a tiny bit flexible and I was super scared they would break some day, so I decided to add the leaves to give the petals some more structure. It ended up working great for the design as well, and I hope they will last her a good time.

Technical stuff: 100% polymer clay and handmade, no premades molds or bought parts were used. No acrylic paints were used to achieve the colors. Metal findings were bought from a local craft store. Each flower is about 1.5 cm (left size reference) or just a bit over half an inch (right size reference).

This was an interesting commission, I was given three elements to work with to create a pendant:

-The design of Tree of Life (basically a tree inside a circle with the branches reaching out to the edges, there's lots of awesome examples in DA).
- An old crooked tree, with the trunk leaning to the side.
- The colors petrol blue, silver and green.

This is the design I came up with, and both my commissioner and the recipient of the pendant liked it! That's what I love so much about custom commissions, when I know that my work is liked I feel extremely happy! It's kinda addicting...

I went for a minimalistic clean look overall, but overdid the curls on the branches just a tiny bit, for contrast. I decided not to add the green to keep it minimal, and resisted the urge to bling it with some crystals. I used a needle to give the impression of bark and added silver mica to make the silver very shiny, it also helped pull off the impression of bark. It has been a couple of months since I made this, and looking back I think I would have liked to add roots to it, but I don't know if my commissioner would have liked it XD it wasn't part of the sketch I sent her with my idea. Oh well.

The blue disc/pendant has beveled edges, it looks very interesting. I found a cool way of making pendants look very even and with a nice beveled edge :dummy: no molds ;) just playing around with my clay until it happened. Maybe one day I'll make a tutorial for it. I have so many tutorials in mind it's not even funny.

Materials: All handmade with polymer clay, no molds, premades, cutters or anything were used. Silver mica was used and sealed with a tiny bit of glaze.

This is part of the commission I did for ~guinluvsc, for Mother's Day she wanted her mother's two cats and this is one of them, Cheesey ^^ he is a russian blue just like my own Misha, so I was able to use her as reference to make sure everything was perfect :D I even painted the faint lines in the tail. She wanted to me to paint the eyes too, and I think I did a much better job this time than when I painted his partner Mac.

She asked for a light blue moon but she didn't know what deco she wanted, so I suggested vines with some flowers; she asked me to do lilies, and I really like the way they turned out but wow lilies are SO difficult to do in this scale, just look at how small they are :faint: well in the end I ended up liking it, and I hope she'll like it too :fingerscrossed:



Would you like to commission a Mondkatze?


I'm accepting commissions for this, I can customize the moon with any combination of colors you want, or make it flat instead of textured, round, shiny, anything! If you send me reference photos I will also make an exact miniature copy of your own cat or any cat you want. You can read my commission info here and my pricelist here.



My boyfriend and I have made up tons of cute stories about us living in the Moon and creating our ideal world. Since we both love cats and identify a lot with them, eventually the term "Mondkatze" (Mooncat) surged - it's in German because we both study German and we like to speak in German between us to practice.

This was a commission, when I finished it I took photos and put them all together like this. I thought it looked better, but the file is huge so I divided it in 4 pieces and published them individually. This Friday on the #ArtisanCrafts chat `Romaji organized a scavenger's hunt (it was super fun) and one of the clues involved the fan on top of the chopstick. Today I remembered this, looked at them all together and I realized I was right, they look better together :stare: so I'm submitting it, even if the file is big XD but I think it gives a better idea of the work and details I did, and how they work together.

Lesson's learned: Always go with your first instinct and life is random. Also, `Romaji organizes super fun chat games.

I recently learned that Maneki-nekos are bobtail cats, which have short stubby tails :doh: It annoys me to see the long fluffy tail now :( also, my old watermark is a lot more intrusive, I didn't notice it until now :o aaaaand I feel a lot more comfortable painting faces now, I should try making another maneki-neko :P

Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, no molds, premades or bought pieces were used. The flowers were made cutting the basic shapes with flower cutters, then polished and shaped to look better. I used natural bamboo chopsticks, they're meant to be used as hair decoration. This is a one of a kind piece, made with my commissioner's design.

I'm just going to sneak this in here and hope the people that are getting this earrings don't see them before I send them... and if they do, well surprise I hope you'll like them! But I really wanted to post this before Christmas, and they look so adorable together holding hands so I didn't want to post them at different times ._.

I made Eley for =moofestgirl after the baby elephant that *kimchikawaii designed for her, I wanted to put a Santa hat on her too but that would have hidden the bow... and the bow is the most adorable thing ever ._. the bow is merely 3 mm long. The blue penguin is for ^maytel, she loves penguins and she's always changing her avatar but when I think of her I always imagine a blue penguin like this. Lastly the black penguin was for my mom's friend, I also made black penguins for my mom but she was so excited that she put them on before I had time to take the photo :lol: so I actually made 4 pairs of earrings but only three are shown here.

I tried to make them all the same but that's impossible since well... I'm human... so there's little differences between them. I think I looked at them for too long because after a while I started to notice characteristics or personalities in each one, so I started thinking of them as the happy one, the fatty, the timid, etc. It was kinda fun, but it would probably get me locked up if someone saw me :lol:

Happy Christmas/Hanukkah/Saturnalia/Yule/Kwanzaa/Solstice/Hogswatch/St. Lucia everyone!

Technical stuff: All handmade out of polymer clay by me, no premades or molds were used. The eyes were painted but everything else is clay. They're all glued to metal studs.

This was a birthday present for my sister, since she was little she has been obsessed with pie... she asks daily if I can bake or buy her pie, when we were little she used to ask for pie in her Christmas letter to Santa, and then she would ask for pie in mine too :rofl: so for her birthday I made her an apple pie as a ring, and for the first time in a while I went by a few days without receiving a request for pie XD

When I was making the pie I remembered that *fairchildart had a wonderful apple pie tutorial and I used her ideas for the apple slices, but I made the rest more similar to how a real pie is made. I love the way the slices peek through the crust, but I think I would have liked to make the crust a bit more open to show the slices better. Next time I think I also want to try making a border to give it a neater finish. I liked it a lot and my sister liked it even more, so I'm very happy :)

Este fue un regalo de cumpleaños para mi hermana, desde que era pequeña está obsesionada con el pay... diario me pide que le haga le compre pay, cuando eramos pequeñas ella solía pedirle pay a Santa y luego escribía que quería pay también en mi carta :rofl: para su cumpleaños le hice un pie de manazana de anillo, y por la primera vez en mucho tiempo pasaron varios días sin que me pidieran pay XD

Cuando hacía este pay me acordé que *fairchildart tiene un maravilloso tutorial de pay y usé sus ideas para hacer las rebanaditas de manazana, aunque el resto lo hice más similar a como se hace un pay de verdad. Me encanta la forma en la que las rebanadas se asoman por la corteza, aunque la próxima vez me gustaría hacer el enrejado más abierto para que se vean mejor. También quiero hacer un borde la próxima vez. Me gustó mucho el resultado y a mi hermana le gustó todavía más, así que soy muy feliz :)


Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, no molds or premades were used everything was made by me. Pastel dust and glaze were used for the toasty look and shiny wet finish. The ring is adjustable and bought. Photographed on my left index finger.

This was a commission for ~Kizzarina after her cat Akiko, a beautiful calico. Sadly Akiko passed away so she asked me to add little angel wings to her, since Akiko means autumn in Japanese I proposed making the wings gold like falling leaves. They are quite shiny in real life, I hope I could show that in the photos :heart: She also asked me to sculpt her in this signature playful position. I decided to add a ruler to show the real size of these pendants, people always tell me that they are a lot smaller than they originally thought, so there you can see that they are about 3 cm or a bit over an inch long. The Moon was made with my opal technique, which I really love and I think that it makes the pendant look softer and kinda angelical. I have a tutorial for the opal effect here: [link]

As some of you already know I love animals, and lately I've been looking for a local no-kill shelter to volunteer and donate to. I think I finally found one that is doing a great job to help animals in need, I only need to contact them directly and make sure that they are devoted to the welfare of animals. I want to start raising funds, so from now on all the profits I make from Mondkatze and Mondhund (minus shipping and materials) will be saved and donated to my local no-kill and no-profit shelter, I will give more information about the shelter once I confirm that they are what I'm looking for. I think that this is a great chance for us animal lovers, you can get a customized piece of your pets AND donate to animals in need :meow: if anyone is interested contact me! Edit: ~Outtoclay is also having a jewelry sale to benefit her local cat shelter, more info here: [link]

This was a commission for ~guinluvsc, she wanted me to make this for Mother's Day, if my mom didn't have her own Mondkatze already I would make her one too! XD This cute little kitty is Mac, he's a dark gray tabby with a bit white around the feet, mouth and eyes. ~guinluvsc wanted me to paint the eyes, which I usually prefer not to do so this is the first Mondkatze with eyes.

As for the Moon, this one has vines with her mother's favorite flower, snap dragon :D those flowers are so small and were a bit complicated to do :shakefist: but I think they look amazing :)

This was a commission for *GrandmaThunderpants, she asked me to make her mother's dog Nike in the style of my Mondkatze, this is a pendant but I took the photos before gluing the bail. *GrandmaThunderpants referred to Nike as the "potato dog" because of her adorable chubbiness, and I looooved that XD so I kinda accentuated her potatoness. This pose lazily stretching was one of the references she sent me, she had that face of utter happiness and I tried to paint it, I hope successfully.

She told me that her mom loves tiki style, which was quite a challenge because we don't have anything tiki here lol. I worked with the photos she sent me and I noticed that they use a lot of wood and hibiscus flowers, so that's what I used for this design :) I wouldn't say it's 100% accurate, but she liked it ^^

Technical stuff: All handmade by me with polymer clay, the wood grain was made with clay too. Acrylic paints were used to paint the moon and Nike.
