Master Jenkins the Korat
Master Jenkins is the first Moon Whiskers doll. His appearance and personality are inspired by my childhood cat, Hunter, who was a member of my family for 19 years. 'Jenkins' was one of his many nicknames. His colouring is a purple silver grey as this is how I imagine him as an angel.
Master Jenkins stands at approximately 22cm tall. His poseable body is made from soft foam covered in hand dyed fabric. His face is sculpted in polymer clay and is hand painted. It attaches to the back of his head with magnets so it can be removed to access a switch to light up his eyes.
He wears a hand dyed silk velvet frock coat in a silver-purple, inspired by 18th century fashion. It has tiny silk buttons on the front and pocket detailing on the sides. A pale rose corsage is neatly pinned to the front.
