Cheshire Cat.

The making of this kitty has been a labour of love. His eyes are hand casted in resin and painted using both acrylic and glass paints. I wanted them huge and piercing. I made his teeth out of clay as I thought his grin needed to be the main feature. From ear to ear, slightly yellow and (because I am THAT childish) I painted each tooth with glow-in-the-dark paint.

The face, body and paws are made from a short, soft, grey faux fur but to add some life to the piece I have used all in all 5 different faux furs on him. He is lying on a piece of driftwood and can either hang on the wall or rest on a shelf with the wired tail hanging down. He is slightly larger than a real cat. Hope you like him!
