This is a perfect gift for a Flattie owner! I have owned Flatcoats for the last 15 years, and based this detailed Flatcoated retriever brooch on our first Flattie, Sam.
The fine detail was sculpted in modelling wax, the original was then moulded, and I began producing the small reliefs in cold-cast pewter in my shed here in Cumbria!
The outer layer is metal and the backing is lightweight resin, which means it doesn't drag and pull on your clothes...it also stays shiny! The cast is wire wooled, then buffed to a shine with a polishing mop and compound. Next, I apply liquid black wax so that the recesses are contrasted with the detail, attach a silver-plated brooch pin to the reverse and finally bring it to life by enamelling the tiny eyes!
This Flatcoated retriever brooch also comes gift boxed in a stylish black and lilac box which I decorate by hand.
I also produce this brooch in cold-cast copper to represent a liver Flattie, so please just mention in the notes when ordering if you'd prefer that finish.
The brooch measures 6.5cm from nose to tail.
I have lived with Flatcoated retrievers for the past 15 years and I love their exuberance, intelligence and mind reading abilities! They are also very beautiful, elegant dogs...the perfect subject to sculpt!
