There’s nothing quite like sinking into a good cuppa with your favourite furry companion. Whether they are curled up on your lap, or in this case taking pride of position on your tea strainer!!
 

Designed and hand sculpted from polymer clay by Dani in her Adelaide home studio, most likely with a cup of tea close by. Dani is a huge pet lover and has years of experience working on her clay skills. 

 

Instructions for use

Load mesh ball with loose tea leaves and slide clip over to hold ball in place.

Dangle ball inside your chosen cup and pet face ove the edge (outside of the cup).

Fill cup with boiling water and leave to infuse for desired time.

Remove tea strainer prior to drinking. 

 

Special Care Instructions 

Rinse and wash mesh ball after use being careful to avoid dipping the pet into the water. 

Not suitable to be washed in dishwasher.

To clean pet face end of strainer, gently rub clay with a slightly damp cloth. Avoid soiling, as repeated cleaning can wear away sealant and paint. 

  

Base Materials 

The pet faces are sculpted from polymer clay, then baked to harden. Depending on colours, some pets will then have details added with acrylic paint, before it is sealed.

The mesh ball and chain are stainless steel.  


Pet photos

You’ll need to send through at least a few photos of the pet that you want the mini face sculpture for the ornament modelled on. Please check out the suggested photos to send through.

Dani’s happy for you to email the photos to heartbeathandicrafts@gmail.com or to message them through Instagram or the Facebook page


Production and processing time

The average turnaround time for custom orders is 3-5 business days, plus shipping. However, in peak periods (eg Christmas), 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. 

 

Style

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.
