Maneki Neko Figure by GrandmaThunderpants Maneki Neko Figure by GrandmaThunderpants
I made this as a housewarming gift for a friend of mine. ;w;

I don't know how to write any Chinese or Japanese, so I just put a heart on the coin instead of butchering some kanji ahaha. I based the colors/style off some Maneki Neko figures I have around my house. Then I made a quick little pillow for it to sit on.

This is different than my usual works because I didn't use colored clay, except for the pillow. I wanted to paint this entirely by hand so it would look more like the traditional figurines which of course are all painted by hand.

About 2-3 hours work, Sculpey Orignal and Premo and lots of acrylic paint. :la: It's just barely two inches tall.

Hi there! I've chosen you as the 115th person for my 200 Comments Project Challenge. Basically I'm giving comments to 200 different people in a time frame within a week :D (Big Grin)

As I'm a big fan of cats I truly do appreciate how cute this is :heart: The details of how you designed the Neko cat as well as the colours you have used is really perfect, and I would change nothing about it whatsoever. If it was a keychain it would be very awesome as I'd keep it for my keys :D
