Meet 'Quinto' The fantasy snow-leopard fennec- fox!
He is a one of a kind, handmade semi-posable art doll. Quinto was made entirely from scratch. Starting off as a lump of clay and a few bits of wire, he gradually transformed into the little cutie you now see before you!
I hand sculpted the head and feet from clay onto a wire frame then wrapped pipe cleaners and stuffing around the armature to bulk him out and to give him a realistic softness. The faux fur is then hand sewn on and glued down for extra securness. I then hand painted the clay in acrylic paints and covered it in matt varnish to protect the paint from scratches. Finally I glossed the eyes and nose to give it a wet look.
Quinto's mane and tail tips have been hand dyed pale blue to compliment the blue within his eyes, pawpads and ears. Unfortunatly the camera has washed the pale blue colour out slightly so it is a little hard to see. He has 4 little pale blue adhesive rhinestones attached to the center of his face which follow the pattern of his markings.
Quinto is roughly 7 inches high (from floor to top of head) and roughly 10 inches long in length (Not including the tail) The tail alone is 10 inches so if fully outsretched the overall measurement in length is roughly 20 inches.
-----IMPORTANT------
Quinto is a SEMI-POSABLE art doll. Meaning his posablity is limited. His tail, back legs and spine are fully posable. His fron legs are a little rigid and so are semi posable. Please DO NOT attempt to pose the head and shoulders as this can lead to damage of the clay.
Please remember this doll is NOT A TOY! It is a piece of artwork. The head and feet are made from clay and if mishandled or dropped, damage can occur. Quinto is one of a kind!

I do take commissions, so if you are interested please send me a note or an email! (stephanieatkinz@hotmail.com)

Why thankyou! I wanted to make a grey fox, so I went hunting for some grey fur in my local market and came across the grey snow leopard print fur which you see in the picture. I instantly fell in love with the material so decided to make a hybrid character made from a fennec fox and a snow leopard. I used blue on the ears, eyes pawpads and nails as they are wintery colours and thought it would tie in well with the theme. XD

it was a goo choice :D but why did you make it semi posable isnt it heavy?

I intended to make him fully posable, but as it was my first doll, there was a lot of trial and error. The head was too heavy for the wire to support it so it kept flopping over, so i had to stengthen the main wire, by wrapping more wire around it lol, but in doing so, it prevented the head being posed but at least his head stood upright lol. Ah well you live and learn.I'm really looking foward to making the next one fully posable! ( Hopefully haha!)
