Custom 1/12 scale felted animals on a movable metal wire armature

My love for miniatures, animals and dolls has always been very strong. Drawing, sculpting and animation are also part of my passions. Since I am an eternal kid inside, I like to move and play with my miniatures which lead me to learn needle felting so that I can make movable scupltures on a metal armature. My sculptures can take many positions and are made from a mix of wool and silk. They are 1/12 scale and are made to fit in any dollhouse scene. I simply love to do custom sculptures of people's pets and am always looking forward to a new challenge. I also started to make ball jointed dolls which has been a passion of mine since I can remember. I am open for commissions, please contact me should you have any questions or comments.

A miniature needle felted ragdoll cat 1/12 scale

Here is my new cat!
I always have a hard time doing felted cats in 1/12 scale because it takes forever to gain thin paws so I decided to try something new! A combination of sculpted parts and felt! Best of both worlds, I though. I wasn't sure if it would turn out good or not but I am happy with the result! It came out very poseable and more realistic than my previous cats, Yeah! Wonder how I could name that one? Hmmm...

I used to do the eyes of my previous cats with peridot stones  but it would sadly lack definition so I used the same technique as my doll eyes. You can see this technique on my miniature eyes tutorial by clicking here .
