Tattletail tattletail

My life is rife with tattle tails.

And that’s all I have to say about that.

I watched this damn cat at the Cause for Paws thrift store, waiting for the price to drop from $6.99. Unfortunately, it never did. And I watched it for 3 months. So, I have up. No actually my mom in law bought it for me. She’s awesome that way.

I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it, I had been planning it since I saw it.



First thing I did was paint the face white so it could dry while I painted the body black.



Seeing how long it would take, as whatever kitty was made of was very porous and textured, I just dumped a glob of black paint on its back.


Have a mentioned a zillion times how I hate steps, and planning and things of that nature? Well… It bit me in the proverbial ass. I smelled a smell, and realized how insanely dirty the bottom if the cat was. And the smell was one produced by a cat, that being one of cat pee.


Sighing with the frustration of being too lazy to pre clean and bitterness of having to get the hell up off my ass, I reluctantly went and cleaned the bottom. I think kitty was a doorstop, and he has that weird felt type crap on the bottom, which I had to rip off and will have to replace.



Back to the face for a second coat. The texture used to indicate his fluffy fur will prove cumbersome in the future, as the details I will be painting on must be linear, smooth, and sharp.



Bad kitty, with your textured face.


I started on my detailing, which did prove to be much more difficult than on a smooth mannequin head.




The heart was a real pain.


I ended up having to paint a triangle, then go back in with white to fix it.




Then wakes up the child.

To be continiued!!
