I really want a rat XD (or a mouse) but my dad said I can't until summer 2016. These are so awesome :) you are so talented and I love these sculptures.

Volunteer to clean one out a couple of times first. That's one of the worst jobs and needs to be done at least once or twice a week. There's a surprisingly large amount of advice on rat care out there. Remember, they're quite smart and if the bars are wide enough to fit your thumb through, kittens (Rats between 1-18 weeks) will escape.... This, I learned the hard way. Handle daily and be warned, those claws can be quite sharp!

I've been doing a lot of research lately about them :) I hope my room would be warm/cold/just right for them it's quite smallish so I may need a smaller animal or different room.

I understand having to wait. I had to wait till I was 18 and all moved out before I could have my first pair of ratties. :3
Thank you! :love:

This little cute rat looked like they were real! All of your work is simply amazing! Also how old were you when you started doing super detailed sculptures? :) (Smile)

Oh I would kill for a sculpt of my boy Psycho...

well... maybe not kill... maybe pay a lot...

What is the cost of a sculpt this size?...

For a rattie sculpture this size I ask $85 additions like wings would cost more.

how may i ask did you achieve the texture on this. It's simply stunning. I had to do a double take because even close up I thought it was real.

Wow, sculpting is difficult to begin with, and rats are so delicate sometimes, even drawing them can be a pain, and that's just one angle. You've got incredible talent, I can see these being so very easy to screw up, congrats on such great work. If I'm ever able, I'd love to commission a couple. Til then, I'll just admire your work here.
