Hello!!! Just want to pick all of your brains... as I am a self taught bear artist, sometimes I doubt myself as to whether I am doing things the 'proper way'!
I have just read through the nose tips and there is nothing on there to answer my particular query?
Last night I was creating the little face on my latest bear and I decided I wanted to move the nose lower down on the face, but of course the gusset seam was too high.... but with some scissor sculpting, shading etc... I felt it would be ok. So I moved my nose down, sewed on a cute button nose, mouth, scissor sculpted, added eyes and she has come out really well.
What I want to know is, have I broken a major rule that noses must be sewn over this gusset seam to hide where the seams meet?
Thanks for you help!
I agree with everyone. She is so pretty too!!
I have sewn one bear for an antique conest on here. I did sew the nose on the side head peices just under the guesst point of the nose and thought it was pretty cute!
Your nose positioning is perfect! I don't think it matters it's not over the seam, it looks right, so it is :)
Nicky, I agree with all the above too, and she is just beautiful. I love the way you've done her eyes. It's entirely up to you where you place the nose and eyes. It's all a matter of what placement looks the best for that particular bear.
For a self taught bear maker you are doing well.
