PostSubject: A wee batch of kitty brooches!   Sun May 26, 2013 11:51 pm


Here's a batch of little cat brooches I made recently to raise funds for Kisu Ry, a local volunteer association helping cats in need. The brooches were made from epoxy with a rudimentary press mold and painted in acrylics. Each is signed and numbered, although I had some difficulty counting to six, so one of them is numbered 0/6. (At least I think I got my name right on most...)



More pictures here, for anyone interested: http://koni.weebly.com/sales.html

Here are a few shots of the original sculpture, too, so you can see the details better.


If y'all can stand a shameless plug (not for me, for the kitties!) and feel like helping out Finnish stray cats, I believe some of the brooches are still available through Kisu Ry's Facebook page (you'll find the visual link on their website here: http://www.kissojensuojelu.fi/ ) - or if you want to, you can PM me and I'll forward you the email address of their sales person.

[A meta note for moderators: if "sales talk" like this, even if for an animal shelter volunteer organisation, isn't allowed, do let me know, and I'll remove those contact details. If these were my own sales and not for such a worthy cause, mind, I'd be making no mention as to their availability in the first place.)

Thank you all! Harriet, clever is exactly what I felt like when I lined up the kitties, decisively scribbled their appointed numerals onto them, and was left with one inexplicable extra kitty and the slow realisation I'd have to assign him either "7/6" or "0/6"..

Either that, or '0' there will go on to become a massive collector's piece in the future (of some far diverged parallel universe), leading to worldwide renown and neverending funds for Finnish strays.. Your alternative does sound the more likely scenario, though.

I'm very impressed that out of one sculpt you made so many different cats who all look like they have different personalities! They look wonderful!
