Afternoon everyone. What a wonderful Spring day it was here in Melbourne. My gosh it was so nice. I had a girlfriend come over and hang out and gossip with me. It is always so nice when you have one of those days.
I have something to show you. Most people who make bears use the usual mohair fur to make them including the face. I personally love the look of the needle felted faces. They bring a whole new character to a bear so I thought I would give it a shot. I must admit for my first attempt I did a pretty good job of it. Now on to making the body and sit it somewhere where I can admire it. Here is the progress in photos.
The face pretty much bare with a bit of wool felted on it but
Sculpted cheeks, nose and mouth.
Wasn't happy with the nose (made it look like a
monkey) so I changed it by adding more wool.
Altered nose, eyelids and copic markers used.
Nose done, ears sewn on.
What do you think....???
I seriously need to work on the nose but thought
he looked pretty good.
