Darlene is a handmade miniature original, one-of-a-kind cat art doll, hand painted and hand sculpted in paperclay by artist Max Bailey.
Darlene is an American Shorthair tabby kitten who loves to entertain.
Today, Darlene has invited her friend to an afternoon tea party, and she is waiting for her to arrive. She’s brewed a cup of catnip tea. The cream and sugar are set out, as well as two cups and saucers.
Darlene is wearing a pink dress for the occasion, with green collar and cuffs edged in gold. It will be a lovely party.
Darlene is a one-of-a-kind work of art, and is meant for display only.
She was sculpted from paperclay in multiple stages, to allow for drying and detailing.
Darlene was painted under a magnifying light, with tiny brushes, one hair at a time.
She is signed and sealed with matte varnish for protection and preservation, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
Darlene and her tea set are 1:12 scale. (One inch equals one foot.)
Darlene is 1 and 3/8 inches tall.
Update: Darlene has been adopted. Thank you!
Darlene’s friend is Gina the Maine Coon kitten.
