Squ33x Bum by monsterkookies Squ33x Bum by monsterkookies
I just had to show you his cute little bum and long tail. :P



Don't be fooled by his cuteness.

These mice, named Squ33x, are to be used as spy devices. Their large concave ears capture all sound in the area they are placed in and their six long whiskers act as antennae to deliver the sound signals back to base...

In all actuality, though - he is pretty darn cute. He has large domed ears, goggles, long wire whiskers, curvy coiled wire tail, and a little brass wind-up mechanism (please do not try to turn it).

Although this creature looks to be made from metal, it is not - it is completely hand-sculpted from polymer clay with the addition of a few metal findings. This piece has been glazed with a satin finish for a slight sheen and durability.

:bulletpurple: Squ33x are available for purchase in my Etsy Shop.

What did you make the tail out of? I have a project I'm working on that needs some electrical conduit but on a small scale....that stuff looks perfect.

His tail is coiled wire! You just take 26 gauge wire, usually copper coated, and wrap it around a mandrel or something like a thin knitting needle or some sort of metal rod. XD It can be a little hard on the hands if you're making a lot of coils, but it's worth it. :P Or you can get what they call a "Coiling Gizmo" (Google it) which makes it a little easier. :)

I have to ask. Is that a real metal key, or did you make it out of clay as well?

He is just so adorable! I wish I could afford him.
