Bear Hearts

Hello,

I've been contacted by someone who has made sketches of 5 character bears.
He is trying to bring these sketches to life in the physical world.
The bears have nonplush components that he says he has already found a creator for. Like a guitar, muscle weights, and other things. He needs an artist to create the bears for him.
He is open to pricing, materials, and whatever else.
Anyone interested in this?
Please email me and I will provide him with your contact information.
From what I gather this client is a musician and is frequently on lengthy road trips.

Hugs!
Robert

Happy Holidays!  bear_original

I am excited to share with you my newest realistic bear cub, "Zion". Zion was created from hand dyed mohair. His muzzle, cheeks, and eye areas are all needle felted with mohair felted into the wool. His paws are created from deer skin and are needle sculpted for definition. He has armature in his arms and legs and can be posed in many different ways. He has glass eyes, epoxy clay claws and nose. For adoption details, you may contact me by email: robertformon@bearhearts.com

I hope you are having a great summer!

I have just finished creating "Yosemite".  He is a realistic black bear cub with lots of details.  His entire face was first needle felted and then each of the hairs were individually rooted into his face and muzzle.  This process took between 20 to 30 hours to finish.  He has glass doll eyes, epoxy clay claws and nose, lambskin paws and he is weighted with steel shot for a nice life-like feel.  He also has a skeleton type armature in his arms and legs which allows for many great poses.

You can visit his eBay auction here:

Have a wonderful day!

I have not noticed that the salt does anything to the fabric. I think if anything leaving it in very hot water for a long period of time would be worse as the backing may easily fray when you sew.  Since my water is close to boiling the salt dissolves instantly and then is rinsed off with the dye. I'm sure there are some dyeing experts out there that could weigh in. :)

Hug!

I have some experience with this. Keep in mind, I have mostly dyed only mohair, but think the same thing would occur with other fabrics. I find that if I use the least amount of water and heavily concentrated dye the fabric dyes quickly and makes the backing almost the same color. If I add more water the backing takes a little longer to grab the dye making the fur brighter than the backing. In cases where I'm trying to create a full true black, I add a lot of dye in as little water and dye for about 10 mins. I have pulled it out too soon before and it gave me a very dark blue color, which was not what I was looking for.  I never measure my salt or vinegar. I just guess and pour.

Hope this helps!

I've worked on about 6 at a time before.  I don't really do that anymore because I realized it takes about the same time anyway.
