Mondkatze 13: Hallie by Talty Mondkatze 13: Hallie by Talty

| Etsy | Custom Commissions | Facebook | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |



This was a commission for my sister, her friend is away for a year and she loves her cat Hallie deeply. She was so afraid to leave her behind, so my sister wanted me to make her a Mondkatze as a parting gift and to keep Hallie close to her at all times. Her friend's favorite photo of Hallie was one of her on top of a wall just chilling in this pose, my sister also told me that her friend loves Japanese culture and sakura, so I put both things together to make Hallie look like she's chilling on top of a sakura tree... on the moon... with the sky behind her... don't ask me, it's pretty and it makes sense in my head. It's one of my favorite designs so far. And my sister chose THE BEST way ever to ask me to do something, she came with a bag full of my favorite bread in the whole world, tossed it in front of me and said "make me a Mondkatze". I devoured it all, probably put in a few kilos, and made this. WINNING. I don't charge my mom and sis for my work, but they usually give me things in return so I think we have a sweet deal :)

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 receipt 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!

Technical stuff: All handmade with polymer clay, the flowers were cut with a tiny cutter, shaped to look like cherry blossoms and the center was painted with a light pink wash. Everything is handmade by me, no molds or premades were used.



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. When I do dogs I call them Mondhund :D

This is simply stunningly beautiful! ^_^ The kitty reminds me a lot of my Luna who I had to give up when I moved across country. She was my baby. It's so sweet that you made something so heartfelt and touching for your sisters friend. ^_^
