Are you a busy wizard or alchemist?  Don't have time to take care of your familiar?  Tired of the boring old cats, bats and rats?  Try a Perma-Pet!  These low maintanance darlings of the deep are perfect for the magician on the go!  Special life support spells keep them swimming without the need for feeding or cleaning the jar.  Choose from a variety of aquatic pals, octopuppies, cuddlefish, and sea slugs from a wide array of attractive colors.

Of course these are sculptures not real cuttlefish or slugs.  They are sculpted from super sculpey as is the lid to their jars and painted in acrylics.  The "water" is actually an acrylic gel resin.

:-) Sheryl ŽNoadiŽ Westleigh replies: "You can buy them, they are $65. I ship only in the US, you can email me at noadiart@gmail.com to discuss it. If you happen to be in Maine, they are for sale at the Elements Gallery in Bethel and I'll also be doing the Moore Art in the Park Festival August 11th in South Paris. "
