Pangolin Fridge Magnet - Sleep tight little one by demiveemon Pangolin Fridge Magnet - Sleep tight little one by demiveemon
Update: Sold for $66 which were donated to Equip Rangers to Protect Endangered Wildlife in order to help save pangolins and other animals in Cambodia.

It's time for another pangolin fridge magnet and this time it's actually 2 pangolins in 1! :D

I'm really fond of this tiny duo turned out and I love the twig. I'll definatly make more magnets that include twigs! %D

The mother is covered by almost 200 scales and her baby by around 70 tiny scales of various sizes. Each scale has been cut out by hand, cleaned of fuzzy edges before being glued in place. The sizes range between 2-10 mm.

The bodies are split into several sections. This allows me to fit the scales seamlessly and creates a 3D-effect. The mother consists of six separate sections (body, legs, neck and the tongue) and the little one of three (body and legs). Baby and the tongue can be removed.

Materials: Faux suede scraps, felt, magnet, glue, plastic coated wire, acrylics, twig and patience.

Time: 3 days

Pangolin Fridge Magnet - Sleep tight little one by *demiveemon is a beautiful magnet of an animal we don't see too much art of! ( Suggested by Artha-Amberose and Featured by UnicornReality )

I am so impressed to find someone that is using their talents to bring awareness and help to animals! I work at a zoo and just graduated with a Zoology major and am brand new to devianart, but I am hoping to do the same with my page! But this is so so so beautiful! Anyhow I'm wondering if you would take a commission to do one of these again or one of your baby plush pangolins again? I wish I could make a plush! Such lovely work Clap

Thank you for your lovely comment and welcome to Deviantart! :D
I do take commissions for chibi pangolins and magnets can be done as well.
Currently I'm working on six chibi pangolins featuring new colors. Half will be leafy pangolins based on my pangolin adoptables (partly scaled). Once they're done they'll also be available for sale.

Here are some prices:
Chibi pangolin plush: 170 USD + shipping (70 USD is being donated to help pangolins)
Leafy pangolin plush: Not sure about the price yet, but probably around the same as fully scaled chibi for simplicity
Pangolin Fridge Magnet, curled up: 65 USD + shipping (26 USD is being donated)
Pangolin Fridge Magnet, mother and baby: 95 USD + shipping (39 USD is being donated)
