Yes it took quite a while and it was delicate to dry without cracking too. I was really pleased with the way it came out and have since tried the same thing with a hippo [link]

Thanks for liking him :D
I hadn't thought of it like that... it isn't running water, it's actually the plug chain that just happens to be lined up with the tap :)

oh wow! It looks just like how water looks when it's running just a little from the tap!
Happy coincidences are the best! :D You wouldn't happen to have an etsy or some
other site where you sell your work, would you?

Sorry this is so late!
I don't have an Etsy shop but sometimes I sell things through my website [link]
Mostly the things on there are sold but if there is something you like I can make you something similar :)

I'd love to potentially buy something from you in the future!
but...^^; I can't read your site...Where on the site do you sell things?
Or do you just put things up on occasion?

Sometimes there is a "Hippos for Sale" page but there is nothing on it so I've removed it until some more are available (soon). I'm also going to be creating a "Cats for Sale" page as soon as I have some cats to sell on it. More pages may follow if it works out. Other than that I'm not planning a commercial site because my work is mostly one-offs and I don't want to spand an enormous amount of time taking photos of everything and putting them on/taking them off my site. I'd have no time to make anything!

I understand completely..Even though I don't sell nearly as much as you do,
I know how trying to advertise and sell on the net can take time
away from creating the actual artwork itself. :nod:
I adore your cats! I will :+devwatch: you and keep checking back to your site to see if you have any for sale...
Can you give me an estimate as to how much your cats usually go for?
I understand they won't be cheap. :)

They're generally between 45 euros and 100 euros each depending on the size and the complexity of the colouring.
They'll be this sort of style: [link] as I designed it specifically to be easier to ship. The colour combinations are almost infinite.
Having designed them specifically for shipping they've met with such a success that I haven't had spare ones to put on the site yet! :D
