Kristian is an 8 inch bear cub...my first of 2014. His name means 'new beginning', so very apt for the start of the year. I hand sculpted his head and paws using paper clay. They were then gessoed, painted and sealed. He has glass eyes. His body is made from a butterscotch coloured, short dense mohair. He has a sachet od stainless steel balls in his tummy. He cannot stand unaided.
Belated Happy New Year to all!
