Cheshire Cat Earrings

A friend of mine likes the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, so decided to make her a set of earrings out of FIMO.

The full fleshed version is unfortunately a bit heavy, but she wears the skeleton variation often. My inspiration was in fact the skeleton of a baby mouse I once found. It's about the same size (roughly 5-6cm long, 2cm wide) However, being that it should be the cheshire cat, it's got a wicked set of teeth to boot. :D

It wouldn't be the cheshire cat without the 'night-light effect'...

I could make birthday presents all year round (if only I didn't need to work to finance the materials :]).

This little kitty took me about three hours to complete. He's about 8cm from top to tail and is made of FIMO.

Starting out...

Flourescent FIMO takes a lot of kneading to be pliable without crumbling...

Almost done...

After some detail work and baking, the pads, nose and ears become translucent.

Night Mode!
