Why not have a hand formed, hand painted papier-mache sculpture of a beloved pet made? It could be a cherished memorial or unique decoration for yourself, or a thoughtful gift for someone else. I carefully form and paint each sculpture, trying to include as many details as I can to make it a good likeness of your pet. This is for an 8 to 10 inch size papier- mache dog sculpture.
I make my own papier-mache pulp by whipping and boiling recycled paper, and then form it over an armature that I have hand formed from foil or other recycled materieals. It is done in layers, and each layer is usually dried before adding another. When the papier-mache process is done, I then carefully paint the sculpture with acrylic paint and seal it with varnish. Each sculpture is signed on the bottom by me, the artist.
I give all my customers a chance to view photos by email of their custom made items before the sealant is applied, and they may make any requests for changes in minor details that I may have missed. Satisfaction is guaranteed in that you do not need to pay for the item until after you have given your approval. After approval, your item will be listed in my shop for your purchase only.
In order to match the details and characteristics of your animal, you must email clear photos. It is especially important to have a good view of the face, but if you want the structure and coloration to match your animal, you also need to send pictures from all sides. You may pick a special pose you would like the animal to be in, but you must send a picture of that pose.
I have listed a few examples of some of my custom dog sculptures and their photos for you to view. These are all in the 8 to 10 inch length or height size. Due to the layering and drying process involved and the fact that each one is hand formed, the length or height may vary but your custom sculpture will be between 8 to 10 inches at most in height or length, depending on whether you want it sitting, standing, or laying down. Due to the layering and drying, painting and varnishing time, please allow 6-10 weeks for completion, depending on work load, after the receipt of your photos. To get started just send me a conversation with your details.
