I have to admit, I find a certain hilarity in Lolcats. :-) Don't tell me you don't....you know you do (even just a bit). So, I named this cat the Mean Kitteh in honor of all those misunderstood kitteh's on teh interwebs. Wanna make him??
- Feather Mask
- Thin Styrofoam
- Black Paint
- Mod Podge
- Fine Silver Glitter
- Coffee Filter
- Hot Glue
- Flower foam insert
- My mothers earrings (errr....you're on your own on this one. Maybe your mothers earrings?)
- Floral Wire
- Gold Wire
- White Paper
- Duco cement
~Trim mask like this. Also, cut of the small feathered side pieces (those will go on the tail).
~Using an exacto knife, trim a piece of this foam into the shape of a cat hissing, minus the head. I cut some jagged edges around all the edges.
~Hot glue the larger feathered piece on the back, the smaller pieces on the tail and the floral foam onto the head. Paint them black.
~Give them a coat of mod podge and while it's still wet, dust the silver glitter onto every part of it.
~For the eyes I used some oval shaped metal earrings and some yellow metal for the iris. For the nose, I used another earring piece. I hot glue them onto the face.
~Paint 6 pieces of green floral wire black (with some glitter mixed in).
~Take a piece if gold wire and make it into a mouth shape. Cut two tiny slivers of white paper to be the sharp teeth. Use some duco cement or something similar to attach them to the face.
~Shape the black floral wires into whiskers and stick them through the floral foam on the head. Hot glue them into place from the inside of the head shape.
~For the tag, I taped some coffee filter onto some 8x11" printer paper. I found a font I liked and printed out some different versions. Then I trimmed out the one I like with some zig zag scissors.
~Add a piece of gold wire and hot glue it to the paper. Then stick that wire into the back of the kitteh (sorry kitteh).
