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 a commission for `ShePaintsWithBlood, and also the first Mondkatze commission I received for my animal shelter fund :D she wanted me to do the moon steampunk style, which I've never tried before! She was kind enough to procure the pieces and let me decide the design. She asked to do the cat purple with orange spots, also a first time for me so I was a bit scared... she said it's an exaggerated version of her own cat :) when I finished it I noticed it kinda looks like an alebrije, a sort of folks art here in Mexico. She told me that she liked it and (like usual) that she's surprised by how small it is! I really love making small things :meow:

The clock was my favorite of all the pieces she sent it and I thought it was perfect to be part of the moon. She also sent me tiny stars which are extremely adorable and I loved them! A couple of the cogs had to be pressed because the space available was too small, I tried to cut them and place them but they looked odd so I decided to press them and paint them. I hate saying things like "it looks much better in person" because it sounds like an excuse, but I swear this time it is for real Oo it looks ten times better in person, and I'm really proud of how it looks! Now I can say I've tried a new style, Steampunk :)

As some of you already know I love animals, so I looked for a local non-kill shelter to donate and volunteer. I found one that is doing an amazing job helping animals, I contacted them and they're awesome. I want to start raising funds for them, 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 make every donation public and post the recipt to prove that I'm doing this for real, I will also write a journal about them soon. 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!



Would you like to commission a Mondkatze or a Mondhund?


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, dog or any cat/dog you want. You can read my commission info here and my pricelist here. 100% of the profits (minus shipping and materials) will be donated to a local non-kill and non-profit shelter I'll post about it soon :D



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. I eventually started making dogs, and so now I also offer "Mondhunden" (Moondogs).

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.

I forgot to post these :lol: I found the pics the other day and wondered why I never did... a year ago my boyfriend said that I needed a place to display my dollhouse and miniatures, so he built/bought me a lovely sort of bookcase and I made each space a room of my dollhouse (it's a fantastic design, and it saves so much space since it's vertical!). He didn't want my things to get dusty so he also added acrylic doors to it, and this was my contribution to the project, the door handles :lol: I glued them to the acrylic doors and they work fantastic and they are so fun to watch XD

I don't remember how I decided what to do for the door handles, I think I just did the stuff I wanted to make at the time lol. So they are a jelly cake roll (my bf's favorite, before I glued it he threatened to eat it if I left it unattended), a chocolate petit four, a jam cookie, a marshmallow, a colorful lollipop and a mint chocolate truffle. My favorite part was the creamy inside of the jelly roll, I love that texture XD TEXTURES I love making textures!

Comments and suggestions are much appreciated :blowkiss: these are also available for commission as pendants, charms, earrings, etc.

Se me había olvidado poner estas fotos :lol: las encontré el otro día y no me explico por qué jamás lo hice... hace un año mi novio decidió que me hacía falta algo para exhibir mi casa de muñecas y miniaturas, así que compro y construyó una especie de librero y en cada espacio puse una habitación de mi casa de muñecas (es un diseño genial, ahorra mucho espacio por ser vertical). No quería que mis cosas se empolvaran así que le puso puertas de acrílico, y estas manijas fueron mi contribución al project :lol: las adherí a las puertas de acrílico y funcionan perfect, y son muy entretenidas de ver XD No recuerdo como decidí que miniaturas hacer, creo que solo hice lo que me dio la gana en el momento. Hice un pastel enrollado con jalea, petit four de chocolate, una galleta de mermelada, un malvavisco, una paleta de colores y trufa de chocolate y menta.

Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay and liquid polymer clay for the jam and jelly, no molds were used. The cookie shape was cut with a small cutter. Pastel dust was used to achieve the baked effect. The cake texture and color were made using the same technique I explained in this tutorial: [link] the method I use to making whipped cream is also explained there.

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.

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]

so. this is my little duck, swimming in a pond. =]

the duck is made of polymer clay, as well as the blue pond bottom. after baking the bottom was covered with resin in order to look like still water.
the whole is assembled in a bottle cap, and made into a ring!

the idea kept teasing me for a long time and i'm so glad i carried this out at last!!
