Suitable for complete beginners, this kit contains everything you need to create your own fabulous bronze finished 'sleeping cat' sculpture at home! Once finished, your sculpture will measure about 12cm x 10cm and weigh 550 grams. You can even base it on your own cat or kitten. Also ideal for a unique gift which can be sent directly to the recipient (you can include a personalised gift card and message which is in the 'shop').
The 'Sleeping Cat' kit comes with written instructions (with photos) as well as a link to a YouTube video showing Jo explaining the complete process. No previous clay sculpture experience is expected as Jo will show you each step in detail. In the kit is a scale template of Jo's own British Blue Cat (Olive), however she also explains how you can create a scale template of your own cat. Names can be scribed on the base to make it even more personal.
You will usually take about 90 minutes to sculpt your cat using quality air-drying clay, although Jo includes in the kit a bio-degradable bag to keep your sculpture moist should you wish to take a break. Once finished your cat is either left to air-dry over 24 - 48 hours, or popped into an oven for 90 minutes! You then use the provided paint and gilt cream (paint brush and applicators are in the kit) to evolve your sleeping cat into a beautiful bronze finish.
So you can share your experience with family and friends. Also on sale is a cost saving 'party' pack for 4 people (£89). The products are individually packed so you can easily spread between households if social distancing. Fabulous fun and enjoyed by any age group (please note young children must be supervised). Jo guarantees no two cats will be the same!
Please note - these wonderful cats are for enjoying inside as the air-drying clay prefers not to endure soggy weather ;-)
NB: Postage is £3.50 via the Post Office for mainland UK only.
