RAZZLE DAZZLE THE CLOWN

Wow, two posts in two days - that's the first in a very long time :o)  I've finished the second bear that I've been working on for weeks.  His name is Razzle Dazzle and he is one of my clowns.  He is make from semi sparse German Shulte mohair and he has been aged and shaded to give him vintage appeal.
Razzle Dazzle is 6 1/4 inches tall, fully disc jointed, stuffed with excelsior and steel shot for an antique feel.  His eyes are German amber glass and his sparse nose is waxed.  Razzle Dazzle has a few bald spots, along with tiny holes in his aged, wool felt paw pads, where his excelsior shows through.

Razzle Dazzle is wearing a wool felt clown hat and a matching organza ruffle, that have also been aged.  They are both removable, if for some reason he tires of being a clown.  If you are interested in Razzle Dazzle or have any questions, just drop me an email. Shipping to most places in North America is $15.00 and overseas shipping Europe is $15.00.  All other destinations to be determined. I hope you like him and thanks for stopping by.

Poor Honey felt a little under-dressed when she saw the lovely clown outfit for Razzle Dazzle, so to humor her, I let her try it on - she looks pretty cute.  If anyone would be interested in Honey, with a clown outfit instead, I would be happy to make one for her.

FINALLY A NEW BEAR

This is Honey, a lovely hand dyed - a creamy golden beige teddy, made from hand-dyed German Shulte Mohair.  She is 6 1/2 inches tall, fully disc-jointed and gently aged and distressed, with tiny spots of mohair missing.  Honey is filled with excelsior and steel shot and her face, ears, eyes and paws are shaded with permanent fabric paint, for a vintage look.  She has amber glass eyes and a sparsely waxed nose.  Honey is adorned with a vintage silk ribbon, and a tiny metal disc, with a honey bee etched on it.  If you are interested in Honey or have any questions, just drop me an email. Shipping to most places in North America is $15.00 and overseas shipping Europe is $15.00.  All other destinations to be determined. I hope you like her and thanks for stopping by.

A TINY TREASURE

I have had this kit for a few years, and had always planned on making it up as an accessory for one of my bears.  However, after spending countless hours painting and adding stands to the animals, and a ramp for them to go up into the Ark, I'm thinking of keeping it. The Ark is approximately 1 1/2 inches x 1 1/4 inches and the animals range from 2/3 inches (giraffes) down to 1/8 inches (bunnies)  I have two more kits, but it will be a while before I do this again lol!  Hope you enjoy this tiny treasure.
