Weighting the bears arms and legs can add to the lovely weighted feel and it is especially good if you are trying to obtain a real slouchy look. Beads in the tips of the toes can also aid turning the feet outward to get the look of an old bear with splayed feet. Weighted feet can also help a bear to stand if that is the look you are after. Enjoy experimenting. :dance:
thanks girls :clap: , i haven't think much on the visual possibilities instead of the physical sensation. next, i will try on the toes to see the result and still need to explore on balancing the heavy feet in order to make him stand well.
and Linda, you exactly point out my problem, the joint!
