Norwegian forest cat MINA
Mina is OOAK. She has been entirely designed and hand sewn by myself, in a smoke free environment. Many hours of patient work have gone into the conception and crafting of this cat.
MEASURES: 33 cm (about 13 inches) from nose tip to rear.
MATERIALS: I have used two different kind of high quality faux furs: a very long and thick white and a feathery one with a silk feel and multicoloured shading. Ultra suede for inner ears. Horse hair for the whiskers. Sheep wool for the stuffing, with an addition of enclosed white granulate for added weight.
FEATURES: Mina has a needle felted face. Her eyes are of transparent German glass that I hand painted in tones of orange and gold for a realistic effect. Her nose is needle felted, sealed and layer painted. Extensive scissor sculpting and shading were done to her face, body and legs. Paw pads have been sculped with Apoxie clay, layer painted and firmly attached to the paw area, for a very realistic effect.
JOINTING and POSING: all four legs are cotter pin jointed and have a metal wiring. The tail is also wired, and the head is connected to the body with a flexible ‘spine’. Thanks to these features Mina can be arranged in many different and realistic positions. She can sit, lay, look up down or sideways. Front and back legs can be partially folded and look very natural and real.
I have made an embroidered felt toy ball for Mina, she loves to play with it!
As with all my creations, Mina comes to you with a specially embroidered felt birth certificate.
MINA is a collector item not suitable for children. This creation is meant for display and not as a toy.
