This little faux turquoise dog is hand-sculpted in a primitive style, meant to look like a Zuni Fetish animal carving. is about 1 1/4 inch (3.2 cm) tall and about 3/4 inch (1.9 cm) wide. He is hand sculpted from turquoise polymer clay, which I marbled with a small amount of two colors of copper mica powder, in varied textures, mixed in to give him a slight sparkle and depth. After I was satisfied with his form, I lightly hand-buffed him to a soft sheen. He was then baked, giving him a satiny, subtly swirled appearance, pleasing to the eye and to the touch. To complete the faux turquoise look, I gave him a coat of clear glossy acrylic varnish.
There only one of these faux turquoise dogs available.
Note: Although polymer clay bakes hard, due to the tiny size of this piece, reasonable care should be taken to avoid breakage of his more delicate features.
Barring unusual and unforeseen circumstances, I ship within one business days after purchase.
