Hello! A warm welcome to BLACS art, where miniature wool dogs are created.  I’m Nikoru Nicole, you can call me Nicole.  I’m a wool/fiber artist and I specialist in needle felted miniature dogs.  I am based in Singapore.
I love handicraft and needle felting is one of the craft that I love to do and it soon turned from a sometime hobby into a full blown passions.  As I want to bring something that reminds me of my dogs at work or wherever I am travelling, then I started of with creating felted by using my dogs as a model into miniature, this is my perfect option that I can always remember them.  Absolutely, they have brought me to the art of making miniatures for display and memorial pieces, that is how BLACS art was born and it’s not surprising that all my works have 4-legged paws.  You could say it’s taken over half of my life!   
I always spend my hours to study all the dog photos provided by customer. There is nothing about every of them that I don’t absorb during the making process and I become very familiar with them. I try to capture that character in the felted version.  For at least a few days, the dog that I am working on has becomes very much a part of my life! Each miniature of dogs or pets are custom-made to represent your special animal, with their unique face and pose.
The best I could, I try to recreate a miniature replica of your dog.  It may be a new dog in your life, an older dog you have loved for many years, or a beloved dog that has passed away.  My sculptures celebrate the life of pets and the wonderful relationship and companionship they offer us.  These memorials are very special to me, as they are for my customers.
It may take up more to 20 hours, creating a needle felting dogs or others adorable pets. A labor of love is indeed. And one of the best parts of my job is meeting fellow dog lovers/pet lovers from all over the world and brings my art craft to all over the world. ♥
If you’re interested in engaging me to sculpture your lovely furry kids, please email me contact@blacsart.com or blacsart@gmail.com
All my creations here are purely freehand, 100% handmade custom made with love and passion, thus each and every one of them are very unique. Its take a lot of patience and time consuming and hours of “Needling” to create the arts and detailed sculpture but end of the day, the result come out are very importantly to me. Most importantly are all the adorable fur-kids; their paw-rents who engaged me making them happy and satisfied.

Yours sincerely,
Nikoru Nicole

Nicole got mini Bobby to be delivered just before Christmas and it was the best present I've received! Mini Bobby looked so real when I sent photos of the sculpture to my friends they thought it was the real cat 😂 I'm not even kidding! She delivered it just in time for me to bring my mini baby overseas where I'll be away for 5 months! Her artwork is superb and totally exceeded my expectations. Bobby has a scar on his body and she made this "imperfection" so beautiful it's really one of a kind and cannot be replicated. Would definitely purchase again for my other cat when I return. I trust her skills and it's definitely very worth it. Thank you so much!!

Thank you so much Nicole for making mini Chili and mini Sugar! I really appreciate the details that were put in the minis to make it unique and not just a generic husky. Sugar passed away after I have order the minis but now I the mini with me. They will always be treasured. <3

I got my Sheltie today and I love it so much. Such good work you do. It did not take long at all to get and the person I got it for I know will love it to. I am so happy with the work I will be sending pictures in the fall of my sheltie Harley to have a look alike done of him. Thank you very much. Great Job!

I'm really really impressed when I received the mini whiskey! Even though it's delayed by a month but it's still worth the wait! It looks exactly the same as my whiskey... It's so cute and every single details on whiskey can be seen on the mini sculpture. Nicole is very patient and talented! She even make a delivery to my hse at around 11pm. It's nicely packed in a handmade paper box and a customized message card. My hubby loves it too. He immediately grab his phone and get whiskey to pose with his mini... I'm so glad that I have made this decision to get Nicole to do up a mini sculpture on whiskey. He's our precious and we love it lots! Thanks Nicole for the hard work! Appreciate it.

I cannot thank you enough for your exquisite works of art, they are so very, very beautiful! Hours and days of hard painstaking work by your clever fingers have produced exact replicas of these 2 beloved dogs. My beautiful Zeus (who was taken from me aged 2 and a half years old). He was my shadow and I loved him dearly. And my dear friend Travis (who was a rescue dog). Forever in our hearts. You were so meticulous in getting every single detail right, and so very very helpful. I am sure I will come back to you for mini-me's of my two living dogs, and I hope we will always be friends! xxx

Loved the minime version of ourJapanese Spitz and Shetland sheepdog. Nicole was very articulate with the design of our 2 dogs even down to my Spitz's pinky nose and cream coat. Wife was extremely pleased how the 2 minime turn out. We will definitely recommend anyone who wants a minime version of their pets. Thank you very much!!!

A very well done piece of work. Managed to capture the eye expression which I think it's the most difficult part. Will definitely recommend to all my dog lover friends! Keep up the good work!!

Pleasant people with great patience. These guys put every little detail in place from the ears to the tail. Very thoughtful not to glue Mini Odin to the casing too! Now we can take Mini Odin with us everywhere we go!
