So this is the first large rat sculpture that I have shipped aaaaand I am sorry to say he did not fair well through the shipping process at all.
I did spent a lot of time making him though so I still want to share him with you. We can just say that this is the "prototype" of the AMAZING sculpture that I will be making of Kricket in the future!

I have plans to improve on the structural sturdiness of certain parts of the armature and I plan on obscenely wrapping in bubble wrap for shipping. I am very interested in know how to best ship sculptures though, so advise is welcome.

In the end I did learn a lot making this guy and I hope to continually improve.

Materials used: aluminum foil. wire. glass beads. polymer clay. acrylic paint. pearl ex powder. fishing line. wool.

Resculpted...


More sculptures by me...

Your sculptures are fantastic! How do you get the skin color and translucency so accurate? I also sculpt Rats and Rat pups and I'm having a hard time getting the skin down. Would you mind messaging me back on my facebook page "Marikas Miniatures"? It would mean a lot! I love your work! Thanks so much in advanced!

I am currently practicing making some, then I will see if I can ship them safely. I do not feel comfortable asking payments for something I do not feel confident will arrive in one piece. If all goes well with those then I will go ahead with commissions for my life sized rats sculptures. =]

That's amazing, it looks like my hairless rat, Sugar who passed on in 2004. She was my heart rat and I had her cremated she meant so much to me. How much do you charge for these sculptures?

Rats are one of my most favorite animals, but when I was little I was obsessed with Llamas, Sheep and Bunnies. I even tried getting my mom to let me have a llama (This was like when I was 4-5), she asked me where I would keep it, and I said the Bathtub :giggle:
