Wanda the Tuxedo Cat, Original, One-of-a-kind Anthropomorphic Black-and-white Cat Art Doll Figurine by Max Bailey

Wanda is an original, one-of-a-kind anthropomorphic black-and-white tuxedo cat art doll figurine, hand sculpted in paperclay and hand painted by artist Max Bailey. Wanda stands 6 1/8 inches tall. She comes with a hang tag, a certificate of authenticity, and a copy of her story.

Wanda’s Story:

Wanda is a striking black and white kitty with big yellow-green eyes and wily white whiskers.

She is interested in everything in the world around her and is always on the lookout for adventures to share with her doll Rowena.

Together Wanda and Rowena run helter-skelter after butterflies. They sneak up on other unsuspecting kitties, and leap out at them from behind bushes. Sometimes, they take out all the food in the kitchen and cook up delightful new dishes.

Every day is a new day to be filled with new surprises and daredevil escapades.

Wanda’s dress is forest green with little blue flowers. Her square neckline has a pale blue ruffle with a gold border. It matches the sash that ties in a big bow at the back. She has white petticoats that can be seen below her hemline.

Rowena has a ruby red dress with gold cuffs, a gold collar, and gold buttons down the front. Rowena’s petticoats are blue and white.

Wanda is an original one-of-a-kind work of art, and she is meant for display only.She has been free sculpted, and no mold was used to make her. She and her doll are hand sculpted from paperclay, and entirely hand painted using acrylic paints. Wanda’s whiskers are made from stiffened cotton thread.

Wanda is signed and dated, and sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation. She rests firmly on a turned wooden base that is stained and sealed in golden oak.

Wanda stands 6 1/8 inches tall. She comes with a hang tag, a certificate of authenticity, and a copy of her story.

Wanda is available for $225.00, with free Priority Mail, insured, shipping within the United States. Please inquire to or find her in our Etsy shop by clicking here.

I was pretty good

I corrected one of my kitten drawings, traced it, and transferred it onto Claybord. I have a newer kitten drawing I plan to paint on canvas, but I’ve been asked where this other kitten wandered off too. I thought I should circle back and finish what I started. I usually work in circles, mentally. I do a bunch of things at once, then go back to where I started. That’s just how my mind works.

Check out my previous post for more on transferring a drawing.

I feel very excited about working on several projects right now, but today is Wednesday, and I promised Max I’d help edit doll photos and make up ads. Oh, take a look at this blog post called “Elizabeth Ruffing Rocks“. Thanks, Shel! That’s so sweet. I totally love that anyone thinks I rock…but some credit is due Max because Max rocks too. People tend to think we are all one person over on Ruffing’s, but it’s actually a shared site, even though I am “the webmaster” 😉 Some dolls are mine, but many are Max’s, including the new dogs. I’m always happy to pass a compliment along though!
