Hi I’m new to this so I’m sorry you will probably been asked this a lot.
I have made a couple of bears and I’m loving it. I have attached a teddy (not my work)it’s so beautiful. Can you help me the nose is shiny, the eyes have lids and the face looks like it’s been coloured. It simply looks stunning I did not know you could do all this. Can anyone help with what the designer has done?

Hi Cheryl, The nose looks waxed (sealers and lacquers are also used), the eyelids look to be made of felt, and the face is indeed shaded with pigments.
