Wednesdays Workbench

This week the two commission pieces I have been working on have been finished and are on their way to their new home in the united States. I had a request from a collector for a lion and am now working on that, the messy cutting out is finished and is ready to be hand stitched. Meanwhile I am waiting on a leopard printed mink fur coat to arrive from the United States, this fur is very hard to come by and I am so excited to see it.

This week I have been working on two commission pieces for a customer, one is a dark brown and white panda who is almost completed and the second is a lion. The panda is receiving the finishing touches and is ready for his owner to choose a name. It takes a lot of work to bring a mink bears little face out from behind the fur, lots and lots of trimming with the scissors to sculpt those puffy cheeks and chin.
Test eyes and nose and fur removed from bridge of
 nose for eye placement.

Cheeks starting to be shaped and nose bridge refined.

Eyes in place and trimming completed.

All finished.

The start of 2015 is looking to be very busy, my first bear Raffi was adopted from Bearpile very quickly and has been delivered to his new home. While working on my next bear I was commissioned to make a bear and lion for a new customer, so I am now concentrating on getting that order completed.
I will then return to finish this little bear and have him or her available for adoption.

New year New Bear

I am happy to introduce my first bear for 2015 call Raffi, he is made from the darkest brown and white recycled vintage mink furs and stands just 6 1/2 inches tall. His face has been very carefully hand scissor sculpted to show his round cheeks and little chin.

Raffi has been adopted and is now with his new family.
