One of a kind, lifelike yet whimsical, sculpture in wool: Fiber Friends are all of these things and as unique as your pet! This listing is for our most realistic felt sculpture: Fiber Friends are tiny (5-6ish inches from nose to rump (when standing)) felted pet portraits, made by a fine artist in Oregon who loves animals as much as you do. Fiber Friends are best displayed in a place of honor, preferably behind glass. Fluffy Friends are slightly more delicate than short coated Friends. Each Friend is custom made to match your pet to a T with a splash of artistry.
I will require excellent photographs of your pet in order to most accurately match their markings. When purchasing this listing please entere your pet's name, preferred pose and choose from the menu to specify your pet's fur color/length.
Fiber Friend: Realistic Pet Portrait
"Short Fur" is for very short coated pets to those with not-too-fluffy looking fur (aka standard coated Corgis count as short coated)
"Feathering Only" Refers to those pets who have longer fur on their tails, ears, chests and bellies. I will felt their bodies mostly tightly and accent the longer fur in those areas: some spaniels, some corgis, golden retrievers, border collies, etc
"Long fur all over" Is for those pets who have truly long fur and will be felted with loose ends all over a tightly felted core body. Mt. Dogs, chows, most LGDs, some golden retrievers, very fluffy cats
"Curly" is for poodles and other dogs with kinky or curly fur. I use natural sheep's locks for this texture.
