Whats In A Bear

 

 What is an Artist Bear?

 

Well it is a bear that has been designed and created by a

 

 single person, a Bear Artist!

 

 What is in a bear?

 

Besides love and care…...I only use quality materials such

 

as mohair, genuine fur, synthetic plush.  I have even made

 

 a bear from a ladies mohair sweater.

 

 Joints are made from fibreboard disks, cotterpins and/or

 

 locknuts. Sometimes to add weight, I will use plastic

 

 pellets or steel shot along with polyester stuffing. For a

 

 more poseable bear different types of armatures are

 

 used…maybe even a double neck.

 

  I use glass eyes that may be hand painted and add eye

 

 lids. For pawpads I may use ultrasuede, felt, suede and a

 

 variety of materials along with claws. How about an open

 

 mouth with teeth and a tongue! 

 

A nose may be embroidered, waxed, made of leather and

 

 clay. I enjoy applying different techiques such as needle

 

 felting, scissor sculpting and needle sculpting (soft

 

sculpting). The paws may be appliqued, trapunto, or needle

 

 scuplted to make those puffy little toes!

 

Airbrushing, paint, or pencil for shading to add depth for

 

 personality. I could go on and on as the sky is the limit to

 

 the creators imagination in customizing a bear to be one

 

 of a kind!

 

      

 

 

I had a email for an Elementart school teacher that has

found the information here useful. So one of her

 students found this link to the history of the

teddy bear and thought that other readers may

 be interested in reading the history of 

teddy bears.

So thank you Ashleigh for the website:)
