Since this is a new dog type for me, I follow my usual approach by felting the face of a Chow Chow that I picked from a magazine. I am happy with the outcome.
If you wish to have a portrait of your dog in this fashion, please contact me for further details.
The size of the head is 10cm(W) by 8.5cm. The dimension of the frame is15.5(H) by 11.5cm.
Shipment of the above can be made in three working days after confirmation of your payment.
The Chow Chow that I am going to felt looks different from the above. I will upload its picture in this page once it has been done.
Today is September 16. I wish to update the progress of the aforesaid Chow dog. I used the couple of spare days last week to finish its body (See photos 4 & 5). Some may query the necessity of having to build such a muscular inner structure for a dog with a fluffy coat. Well, I think it will support the softer texture of the dyed wools better by creating a matching contour and allow a closer resembrance of out-hanging furs at the tips. The owner has been waiting for the model for over three months. Delivery is scheduled in mid October.
It is October 18. The Chow dog has been completed. It took double the hours that I spent on any previous dog. Because of limited photo space in this page, I have decided to open a new page for it. Please wait a couple of days, as taking presentable photos is a big challenge for me.
