This cute rat sculpture has been handcrafted with polymer clay and was inspired by Instagram posts by fellow jewellery designer Sarah “Branch Beads” who shares a lot of photos of her cute rats. I actually filmed the sculpting and painting process (including mistakes) for YouTube.
After curing the rat, I primed it with white Gesso and then painted it with acrylic paints. The eyes and the nose are
What it’s made with:
- Polymer clay
- White Gesso
- Cocktail stick
- Acrylic paint in burnt umber, white, permanent rose and black
The rat measures approximately 4 inches ( 8 cm) in length and 2 inches (5 cm) in height.
There’s only one rat in the shop, but I can make a rat like this to order – check out my commissions page for more information.
