Update! The Pangolin is available for preorder with - 25% of what you pay will go to a charitable cause to the conservation of Pangolins.

I've wanted to sculpt a pangolin for a long time now, and with a little push from some of my fellow pangolin enthusiasts the time finally came.

I enjoyed this a lot, although it was a challenge to make all these articulated scales. The end result isn't 100% anatonically correct scale wise, but I think the likeness comes across well enough.

The model is roughly 1/12 scale. 80mm in height.

Done in a 50/50 mix of Beesputty tripplefirm and Fimo professional, as per the advice from Valentin Zak.

I hope you like it!

    Omg i want one! I love pangolins and you did a great job! If you also sculpt a Ouroborus cataphractus eating his tail i could even hug you! :D

      Haha, thank you :D I think I’ve had enough scales in my life for now, but perhaps later. It’s an interesting critter!
