Ted.jpgtathand.jpgPoly.jpgFluff.jpgEle2.jpgclowny.jpggday everyone
i've not been on the forums alot latley...just never seem to find the time bettween kids and actually making the bears bear_grin so now ive got a minute id show you what ive been upto...theres some new bears and ive recently been dabbeling in polyclay(not a skill of mine....but sure is fun bear_grin ) i really enjoy sculpting :crackup: sorry i just burst out laughing here...calling what ive been doing, sculpting, is really stretching it bear_grin  anyhow ive got some piccies for you...on with the show.....ok the show wanted to be at the top...does anyone know how to put the writing first??

the little clown elephant has got a needle sticking right through his self...i havnt finished the poor thing yet...hes about 3 inches without his hatand made from sassys, his ears are made from curtain lace that ive painted....i wanted somthing that would "flop"(cant think of a better word )and an old curtain is all i could get my hands

the other elephant is about 4 inches sitting(all sizes are aprox.) sassys again with polyclay tusks

the fluffy brown one is 5 inches or so sitting made from synthetic...hes very soft but everytime i touch him i have to brush him again bear_grin

and the tatty looking mini mohair bear is an experiment of sorts ....ive put him in the mini section too for comment(just thought id tell you incase you wanted to let me know how ratty he looks... :crackup: )

and the big 8inch bear there is my faverite hes such a charmer...i started him off ages ago and he was going to be an indian but the other day i heard this small voice calling me from my cupboard...."tash....tash....TASH"  and when i opened the door the poor unfinished bear threw himself at my feet and begged to be finished(sure...some people will say that my cupboard was just disgustingly full and it fell out...but i know better bear_tongue )anyway he told me that he didnt feel like being an indian anymore as he knew it sounded like more work that just a bear...and he knows i hate extra in the sweetest voice ive ever heard,he told me he wanted to be 'just a bear' a big softy so i couldnt refuse and here he bout the big story, i got carried away, but it was fun bear_tongue  bear_grin

ok thanks for putting up with me...and i hope you enjoy seeing my bears and elephants and 'Sculpting' :crackup:

:crackup: I LOVE bare bears so I think your bear knew what he was asking for - clever bear.

I also love your elephants  bear_wub  I would love to have a little cuddle of the really wee one - he's ears are just so precious  bear_wub

thankyou both :hug:    yes....elephants are very addictive and lend themselves well to differant artists interpretations....latly here on tt there have been lots of them and none remotly alike...i think too that as long as its got a trunk it looks like an elephant, so that makes life easier bear_grin

im planning to make some elephants for sale (hopefully soon)just have to iron out a few details with the patterns first...i find im enjoying just buggering around experimenting with lots of differant animals and techniques...they dont always work but even when they dont, the finished product still seems to have its own my little tattered one.....he is really growing on me and he looks nothing like he was supposed to bear_grin

anyway..thanks again for the replies...i like replies bear_tongue  bear_grin  i think maybe that i just like talking...even if it does feel as tho im talking to myself while typing...he he he
