Corgiloaf Magnet #2

Corgiloaf 002 - Martha Bechtel - Hanging
#002 – Black and Tan (Tricolor)

Behold the corgiloaf! Nothing beats the cuteness of a sleeping corgi in full belly flop and this little guy is no exception. He’s deep in puppy dreams of quantum rabbits, so you can can safely sneak in a bit of paperwork without waking him up…

A handsome tri-color (or black and tan) Pembroke Welsh Corgi, this fella is just as much a working dog as his real-life counterparts. This little pup is a little over 4 inches long and 1 inch high with a 18mm diameter, 2mm thick round neodymium magnet to give him a little extra holding power.

This little guy has a secret– he was originally just black and white! But that’s not an approved Pembroke color and after painting his sibling brindle, I figured I’d better bring him back in line. ๐Ÿ˜‰

The original corgi (a.k.a. corgiloaf) was sculpted by me and then used to create a silicone mold. I cast it using a plaster of paris and wood glue mixture, with additional layers of wood glue used to help harden the plaster before painting.

Still, this guy is Art and not Toy, so it will still be heading for the morgue if it hits the floor. Unlike his smaller magnet cousins, this pup’s too long to bounce gracefully without losing a nose or an ear. In theory, he will be fine if he hits carpet, but most kitchens tend towards the harder end of the spectrum.

Medium: Gesso, Folkart Acrylics (2906 Coffee Latte), and Apple Barrel Acrylics (20503 White, and 20504 Black).
