Grumpy cat was inspired by a picture I found on the web. No idea who the artist is to give credit to. Grumpy is much heavier than the inspiration but might be why he is so Hangry! He was created using a lemonaid bottle, toilet paper roll for a neck, masking tape, and the Jonni wood glue paper mache method. A little acrylic paint and here he is.

Geweldig! Hij kijkt zo van: waag het niet bij mij in de buurt te komen! (Heeft ieder van ons wel eens toch?)Heel mooi gedaan!
Heel erg bedankt. Zo blij dat je het leuk vindt. Ik krijg die blik soms van mijn eigen kat, dus ik moest hem voor altijd bewaren. : )
Love this! He looks so French — no offense meant to anyone who may identify as French ;~)
Haha Oui Oui. He needs a beret!
Thank you! He was fun to make.
Haha!! This is so funny. What a lovely grumpy cat is that!!
Thanks! Cracks me up when I look at it too. : )
You did a great job!!
Thank you!!! I appreciate that. : )
You’re welcome ?
I just love Grumpy Cat! did you use a cardboard armature and bulk up with foil and then Paper mâché clay? Great piece!
I used a plastic lemonaide bottle (half gallon?) When I saw the bottle I thought all along the shape reminded me of a cat. The curvature where the handle was looked like the shape of a cat sitting. So I used that first, then a toilet paper roll for the neck, news paper to shape the head and then hot glue sticks for the legs. The tail is the curved handle of the bottle cut off and taped to his butt area. Worked great just used a little rolled up newspaper to push into the end of the plastic handle until I got the length I wanted. : )
Admittedly, I am not a cat lover – but I truly love this guy’s character, as well as your creativity in making him come to life.
Thanks! I have a cat now that will give us that “I am not amused look” when things arent going EXACTLY her way. So when I saw the inspiration picture and laughed about it I had to try to create it.
Your grumpy cat and all your little critters are very cute! Those pink snails would be a delight for any little girl!
Thanks Eileen. I agree the little pink snails would be perfect for any little girls room. My husbands favorite is the little mouse. He actually came in to watch the progress on it.
Awh, this cat is so darn cute!
Thanks Angela! I am so glad you think so. My real life cat does not seem to agree with you. lol
