As part of my polymer clay making rampage I took a little detour from bead and necklace making and tried my hand at cat face brooches. I really do love kittens and even though I will probably never own one I can certainly own hypoallergenic pins of them! Take a peek:
Me-ow! I am super happy with how they turned out and liked making the different faces and patterns on the cats. It also gave me another opportunity to try to master tiny little paint strokes which is super challenging. I often see crafts and projects people make and wonder how the heck they create things so effortlessly. Painting tiny details is actually really hard and these pins were far from effortless at my skill level - but practise does seem to me improving my abilities.
I really love the little orange cat the most with his smug expression perfect for the label of a jacket:
and in case you are concerned how you will be attaching said brooch - I glued on a nice sized bar pin with epoxy:
So what do you think? Are you big into brooches? or cats? or both!?!
