The clans are large and the series takes place over multiple generations. So I picked the first two cats I read about: Fireheart and Graystripe. Fireheart is featured throughout series, and is the ginger tabby with green eyes. Graystripe is Fireheart's friend is a fluffy gray cat with a dark strip down it's back.
On top my issues with modeling cats, fluffiness is a problem all it's own. I have not mastered adding texture like that - and didn't even attempt it. Graystripe has his fat tail, but I skipped the fluff. The notch in his ear was far easier to accomplish.
Once I baked the pair, I decided they looked half decent. My nephew works with Sculpey as well, so I know he'll appreciate the work that went into it. I just hope next year he'll be reading more books that do not feature cats!
