Salty dough cat

Good afternoon. I recently began to get involved in crafts from salt dough. A friend taught me to make a cat out of salt dough and a regular glass bottle. I will show you what came out of this and tell you. To make a cat I needed: - Glass bottle (with a narrow neck). - Foil. - Wire (which bends well ). - Salt dough (flour, water, salt, vegetable oil). - Brush. - Gouache. - Lacquer. I took a wire 20 centimeters long, folded it in half. After tearing off a piece of foil and made a ball on a wire. The size of such a ball depends on the size of the bottle.

Clasped a ball with dough. It turned out a kind of "Chupa Chups" - it will be the head of a cat.

Then she put one end of the wire into the bottle and twisted the other side in a spiral around the neck. In this way,I fixed the ball.

As soon as I put my head on, I began to make a bottle of dough. I smoothed the joints between the dough pieces with wet fingers (only you don’t need to get too carried away with water, just lightly moisten the fingertips with water). It didn't work out exactly, but then I fixed everything.

Made a cat muzzle. Slightly pulled out the dough in the place where the mustache will grow, to be nose and mouth. From two small balls of dough blinded triangles and made of them ears. Attached them, the edges of the edges also smoothed with wet fingers.

I did not forget to make a breast, and I made two sausages from two sausages.

I made a tail from behind, though I got a short one. Roll the sausage in the form of a carrot, one end turned out to be thicker, the second thinner and glued the tail to its rightful place. Cat from salted dough
After I worked out all the details, I left the cat alone for 3 days, so that the dough dried. You need to dry at room temperature, as a friend warned me that if you dry in the oven or near the battery, the dough may crack, but this was not desirable. After drying, painted it as I wanted. I made a mustache from stamens from old artificial flowers, but you can draw them or make them from something else. It is already at will.

When the paint was dry, I varnished the cat in two layers. That's what I got «Barsik».

It was very interesting and not difficult to make such a cat, so I also kitten made. That's just designed it a little differently.

Try and make such a cat statuette. You will not spend a lot of time and money on this and spendinteresting your leisure. Experiment with the size and coloring and you will have your own "Vasya" or "Marusya", and maybe "Cleopatra". Until next time.
