A SPECIAL GROUP OF BEARS

This is my latest group of bears - I hope you enjoy them!  If you are curious to know why they are special, just email me at:  miniatures97@hotmail.com   :o)

Daisy Thistlewaite is 3 inches tall and made from German Shulte mohair.  She is fully disc-jointed and is stuffed with excelsior and stainless steel shot.  Daisy has amber German glass eyes and distressed ultra suede paw pads (tiny holes).  She has amber glass eyes, a sparse waxed nose and is gently aged and shaded with permanent fabric paint, for a vintage look.  Her sailor dress has a drop waist, with tiny pleats at the bottom and a sailor collar.  It is adored with a silk ribbon tie and it is removable, although tweezers are needed to do up the tiny button.


Clarence the Clown is 4 1/2 inches tall and is made from hand dyed German mohair.  He has black German glass eyes, distressed wool felt paw pads (tiny holes) and a sparse waxed nose.  Clarence is gently aged and distressed and shaded with permanent fabric paint, for a vintage look. He is stuffed with excelsior and steel shot and wears a wool felt collar and hat, that have also been aged, and are decorated with tiny old bells.



Samuel the Sailor is 6 1/2 inches tall and is made from hand dyed,distressed German mohair.  It has a beige backing with a pale grey/blue top.  I like the way this mohair turn out - it really suits Samuel.   Samuel has been aged and distressed - he is missing tiny patches of mohair.  He is firmly stuffed with excelsior and gently weighted with stainless steel shot.  He is fully disc-jointed, with black German glass eyes, distressed wool felt paw pads (tiny holes) and a sparse waxed nose.  Samuel is wearing a hand made sailor collar that is removable.  It has also been aged and distressed.




These bears are really great friends, and wanted to be seen all together, so here they are :o)
