Mondkatze 2: Paka by Talty Mondkatze 2: Paka by Talty
| Etsy | Custom Commissions | YouTube | Polymer Clay Gallery |

Here's my second Mondkatze pendant. My mom wanted me to use the same colors I used for the first one but she wanted me to put Paka instead of Buba. Paka is a calico, so it was a challenge to paint her spots xD specially because I tried to copy her while she was sleeping right next to me, but she kept moving so I made a couple of tiny mistakes -.- so I'll use photos only from now on, cats move too much even when they're sleeping :shakefist: my favorite part is the tail, Paka's tail has lots of broken rings of ginger and black, so it was a bit of a challenge to paint :)

Comments and suggestions are always much appreciated! :blowkiss:
Materials: Sculpey III, acrylic paints, mica, triple thick glaze.



Would you like to commission a Mondkatze?


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 or any cat you want. You can read my commission info here and my pricelist here.



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 will definitely ask for one of these one day. Maybe I'll ask one for every cat I live with... you'll be a millionaire when you're done with me :D
[too bad I'm moving farther away from you for a few months =( that'll get in the way of shipping]

hehehe :giggle: wow! how many cats you live with? I would love to make them for your cats :la:

Actually I don't know why, but I get charged pretty much the same for every package, no matter where I send it :hmm: so I just charge $4 anywhere :la:

Currently I have 17 (I think...). One of my cats died recently of old age =( He had a great life, though, and that's good.

If shipping is always the same, then I can buy some without worrying :D

I just have a question and I'm probably going to sound like an idiot for asking, but I'm not entirely sure what a commission is..?? I'm still kinda new to dA and I'm so lost!! :eager:

Never be afraid of asking me anything :love: A commission is like an order, let's say you want a pendant with some characteristics or a drawing, you'll contact an artist you like and you'll ask them to make it for you, pay them, and they'll send it to you :) it's pretty cool, you get an unique piece of art made to your liking :la:

Very Pretty :) I was wondering what is mica and where can you buy it?
Reply
:icontalty:
Talty Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2011   Artisan Crafter
Thanks! Mica is a sort of fine shiny dust, it's extremely shiny so some clay artists use it for special effects. It's sort of expensive, you can see it here: [link]

Thank you! :la: I had troubles too, sometimes the paint came out chunky. I've had better results painting several thin layers so the paint is smooth and even.
