Each little kitten stands just 10 inches tall not including his or her ears, and is made from dense alpaca. Their distinctive markings were achieved with many layers of hand coloring with Prismacolor fine art pens. In addition to these markings, their faces feature careful scissor sculpting, needle sculpting, a stitched pearl cotton nose, blown glass eyes, enhanced with shimmery gold paint (on the back). They are five-way jointed and stands on their own due to weighted legs and wired tail. Each one wears a simple neck ribbon which complements his fur. My kittens will be an open edition, however due to the hand coloring each one will be unique and so I have chosen to give them unique and alliterative names. My first group were Scamper, Scooter, and Scout. These are Cricket, Colby and Cali.
