i thought it might be interesting to start a post where everyone can show off their first bears(you know those mis-shapen no eared things that are hiding in our homes somewhere,not to mention our hearts,lol)
so please feel free to post a picture and tell us all about it
to get the ball rolling heres a pic of my first bear .....lop (cause he's a tad lop sided!)
This is my very first bear.....and it's not even mohair. I designed this little gal 10 years ago when I was designing for Enesco. She has a hand sculpted head made of Sculpey. The fur texture was made using a pin! Eyes are onyx beads. Head is handpainted and shaded. Body is handpainted muslin.
Enesco never did see my line of bear figurines or dolls. I still have all the original figurines in a box somewhere around here. But alas, this is the only dolly bear I've kept. I sold all the others when I first started making and selling my mohair bears on eBay. So you see, I sculpted bears from clay before designing bears in mohair.
Warmest bear hugs, :hug:
Yes, we did this before - sometime last year. I'm not posting mine again - he was soooooo awful!!!! Poor thing, I stilll have him. I tried to give him to my neice one Christmas, and a couple of Christmas's later, she gave him back to me with a new sweater on him, and a note pinned to it saying "Hi, I am Mr. Balloon Head, please take good care of me and my new sweater". :crackup: Cheeky girl!!!!
after my last post i did look in ther library but just like at the supermarket i couldnt find what i was after if anyone happens to know what section the topic would be under............
Aleta - Where's the fun in looking in the library anyway?
i had a look around while i was there and had myself quite a bit of fun in the library!!!
Don't ever be sorry about asking questions!!! We love talking about teddies that's why it's Teddy Talk! Here is the link to the other time we discussed it. But I'm sure there are many people who have joined since then so there will be more posts here! Iwas thinking when we did this earlier the same thing that you were, there are some pretty impressive first bears!!!
