It has been a really hot few days, which is not ideal bear making weather, but as I am totally addicted to bear making, it will take more than a heatwave to stop me LOL!!! but if I was to be totally honest the stuffing of a big 23 inch bear in the mid day heat, did make me wonder about my sanity :-)
Well my suffering was not for nothing, and I managed to create two Toy-Box Treasures.
The first was was Darby a big handsome boy, who is 23 inches tall, with beautiful amber glass eyes. He is made from an antique gold, mohair. Darby is a little different to my usual traditional bears as I normally remove all the fur from the muzzle, but I decided only to remove a little fur this time to give him a softer look to his face and also applied brown airbrushed shading, which shows off his lovely amber eyes a treat.
I have just loved making Crimple with his long goldilocks looking mohair, he looks and feels such a wholesome bear and has such an innocent look about him. Crimple is 16 inches tall and one of a kind. Both Darby and Crimple are now looking for loving homes.
BEST BUDDIES DARBY AND CRIMPLE
I am now going to get myself a long cool drink.
