Fat Dolphin #001-003

By | November 14, 2017

Behold the majesty of the sea! These little guys were part of the ’round 2′ in the Fat Animal Magnet Christmas present lineup and I can’t remember if I made them or the Orcas first. (This is why I really shouldn’t wait a year to do posts! *facepalm*) This was another sculpture that ended up needing… Read More »

Fat MinPin #001-003

By | November 2, 2017

I had a blast last year making the Fat Animal Magnet as Christmas presents, but it’s taken me forever and a day to finish getting them all up on the blog. That’s what I get for painting 50ish things at a time, I suppose! 😉 Anywho, these cute little doggos were done as a portrait of a… Read More »

Fat Songbirds #001-003

By | October 26, 2017

It’s been almost a year to the day to when I first painted these little guys! I really need to catch up on my blog entries… 😉 Back when I was first dreaming up the Fat Animal Magnet as last year’s Christmas presents, I was planning on just doing these little songbirds. But once I started playing around… Read More »

Fat Cats #001-003

By | May 4, 2017

In the course of sculpting the Fat Animal Magnet zoo for Christmas I ended up doing three different cats… and this mold was the only one I was really pleased with! I have a kittenloaf and a round sleeping cat, but both of those came out not quite cat-shaped. Feline faces are definitely a steep learning curve.… Read More »

Fat Buffalos #001-004

By | May 1, 2017

It’s May and I still have a bunch of these old posts left to catch up on! Yikes! O_O; Most of my relatives are from Buffalo, NY so when it came time to picking critters for the Fat Animal Magnets for Christmas, these guys were a shoe-in! 🙂 I made an extra buffalo because I figured I’d need at… Read More »

Fat Hawks #001-003

By | March 27, 2017

After making songbirds I couldn’t resist the urge to add a little more feathery goodness to the Fat Animal Magnet lineup! (Although these little guys are slightly more pointy than their backyard cousins.) Sadly this is one of the sculptures that didn’t come out as well when I made the mold, so the beaks are a… Read More »

Fat Hedgehogs #001-003

By | March 21, 2017

What kitchen doesn’t need a little hedgehog?? This was the very first sculpted request animal (via my awesome Mom) and it gave me the confidence to open up the Fat Animal Magnets to my Facebook friends. After all, if I could sculpt passable hedgehog, anything was up for grabs! …To be fair, quite a few folks thought… Read More »

Fat Dogs #001-003

By | March 6, 2017

With all the cats in the Fat Animal Magnet parade, it was only time before someone requested a dog! A Carolina Dog (or American Dingo) is a generally dog-shaped dog, so sculpting one of these gave me a wide range of other breeds to play with. It is a fat dog after all, so most of… Read More »

Fat Hippos #001-003

By | February 23, 2017

To be honest, hippopotami were not the first animal that sprang to mind when I started sculpting the Fat Animal Magnets for Christmas, but apparently they should have! Somehow I had forgotten about the earworm I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas, but thankfully my cousins hadn’t and it resulted in an impromptu singalong in their kitchen. I also have one… Read More »

Fat Pony #001-003

By | February 16, 2017

It’s one of those universal truths… if you give me some sculpey, I’m going to sculpt horses! Well Fat Ponies, to be precise.;) The completely unsurprising addition to the Fat Animal Magnet parade turned out to be one of the harder ones to cast. As you can see by the raw resin casts the mold picked up… Read More »
