Wow, two blog posts it two days - must be a record for me :o) I worked on a few small bears, while we were on holiday and I am finishing them up this week. This is the first one "Padraig and his Shoe". Padraig is 3 1/2 inches tall and made from hand-dyed, beige Shulte mohair. The mohair has been aged and distressed, leaving small bald spots. Padraig has leather paw pads, that have been distressed, leaving tiny bits of exelsior showing through the holes. He is firmly stuffed with excelsior and gently weighted with stainless steel shot. His face, ears and paws have been shaded with permanent fabric paints.
Padraig sits in a brown, antique child's button up shoe. It is the perfect size to hold Padraig and show him off. If you are interested in Padraig or have any questions, please feel free to email me. Thanks for peeking!
