This is a listing for a sculpted portrait of your dog, either sitting up on his haunches, or reclining with his front paws sticking out. It will be approximately the right size to sit in your hand - I have shown my hand in the pictures to give you an idea. I will make it out of wool (of various different types) by stabbing it repeatedly with a needle until it becomes a firm and furry sculpture.
This dog portrait has its mouth closed. If you would like a portrait with its mouth open and tongue hanging out, revealing lots of shiny white teeth and healthy gums, this is where you can find it https://www.etsy.com/listing/126303497/pet-dog-portrait-a-sculpture-of-an-open.
When you've purchased this listing, you send me as many photos as possible and let me know which posture you would like your dog in, and any particular aspects you'd like me to pay attention to. Then I will begin stabbing wool, and when I've finished your dog I will send you photos. Then you can tell me anything you'd like tweaking, and when you're absolutely happy I'll send him to you in a sturdy box, by registered mail. (The whole process shouldn't take more than two weeks, depending on how many other orders I have.)
These photos give you an idea of some of the dogs I have worked on so far. You can see more photos of dogs on flickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/amyandpia/sets/72157629721953554/
I will continue working through different breeds of dog, so keep an eye on my shop if you prefer to see them ready-made!
