The best kind of gift is one that is personal, thoughtful and practical, as well as beautiful. Add in local and handmade and this custom pet bottle opener really is the ultimate gift. With either the face or a whole body sculpture of a pet, this really will be a cherished and practical gift.
If you wish to have multiple pets on the same bottle opener, please contact Dani for custom pricing.
Dani, the maker, has been perfecting her polymer clay skills and technique since 2015 and is now based out of her home in East Gippsland, Victoria, Australia. She grew up on a farm surrounded by animals, including pet cats and dogs and this is probably where her love for animals began.
She prides herself on being able to capture the traits that make each pet unique. To help with this, please let her know if your pet has any signature facial expressions, specific markings etc that you want included.
The pet faces are sculpted from polymer clay, baked to harden. Depending on colours, some pets will then have details added with acrylic paint, before it is sealed.
Polymer clay sculpture is then glued to the timber bottle and metal bottle opener.
Generally, the average custom sculpted pet measure approx 3-4 x 2-3 cm in order to fit on the magnetic bottle opener.
The overall bottle opener measures 6.3cm in diameter.
You’ll need to send through at least a few photos of the pet that you want the sculpture modelled on. Please check out the suggested photos to send through.
Production and processing time
The average turnaround time for custom orders is 1-2 weeks, plus shipping. However, in peak periods (eg Christmas, Mother’s Day), this May be as long as 6 weeks. If there is a specific date you need the item by, feel free to make contact to avoid disappointment.
Whilst the style is ‘lifelike’, there are limitations due to the miniature size and materials used, making the outcome an artistic likeness, rather than a perfect replica.
Pet memorial gift
The fridge magnets arrive beautifully packaged, so are suitable to be sent directly to the recipient, if you wish. You can even select a greeting card and Dani can write a little note within if you are purchasing as a gift.
Please read the care instructions prior to purchasing, to ensure you will find the item suitable.
