Feline Finger Puppet

This one was a gift for my little nephew, who was not yet 2 ! He loves cats, and wearing caps on his fingers..it is not possible to see him without atleast one finger cap.

I used a sketch pen cap to use as the measure needed to hollow out the cat from the bottom. rolled out yellow clay and molded around the cap, after a serious dusting of powder between the surfaces. the clay surface was smoothed in first .

The head was attached next, and the features sculpted on bit by bit. Then attached to the cylindrical body. the feet, hands and tail were sculpted and attached.

The heart was sculpted and attached. And left to cure for 24 hours. the outside was given a glossy finish while I left the inner side as it was.

A perfect fit !
