This is Peper. She is my latest creation to be added to the collection that I am currently taking to the Berario Bear Fair to be held in Johannesburg on August 3rd.
Pepper is made from very dense, frosted Tissavel faux fur and stands 40cm (16 inches) tall. Pepper has 6 movable joints with a double jointed neck and has armature in her arms so that she is able to move and pose in almost any direction. Her face, nose ,hands and feet are needle felted using Merino Top wool and then her nose and paw pads are sealed and sanded many times, painting in between each layer to add depth. Her eyes are German, black glass eyes and she is heavily weighted to feel real when you pick her up yet is still extremely soft and huggable. She will be attending the Berario Bear Fair in Johannesburg on August 3rd and is currently for sale.
