Custom orders for Christmas ornaments

I felt a sense of Deja Vu. This time last year, I remember thinking to myself that I should put up listings for custom orders for Christmas ornaments. And now it's a little too late for that since it takes me at least 4 days to fulfil one order and it seems to take longer than the instructions said it would to dry. It must be the humidity in Singapore, it's monsoon season now too.

The good news though, is that the one custom order that I did manage to do turned out pretty nicely despite it being my first time using dough. I had no idea how it would turn out but I had a vague idea of how I wanted it to look and tried to manipulate the dough as best as I could.

Looks a little bug-eyed but exotic short hairs (or as I like to call them affectionately, pancake-faced cats) tend to look that way anyhow. Still need to refine my technique and the finish but I like the overall look of it.

If you'd like a custom order for a Christmas ornament of your cat or almost any animal, feel free to send me a convo with a picture. Of course, this means it will have to wait till next year... by which time, I hope, barring early onset dementia, I will remember to have custom listings up for people to order from.
