Wednesdays Workbench- commission bear

I had a request to make a commission bear for a customer during the week, this bear is made from very dark brown and white mink fur, he/she is now waiting for the owner to choose a name and be sent to its new home.
 
 
 
The leopard printed fur creation from last week has been finished although I stopped working on it to do the commission. All I need to do are the accessories and photography, hopefully all will be finished early next week.

Wednesdays Workbench

I spent a lot of time on the computer this week redesigning my website with a fresh new look. The colour pallet is still blues but I also used a lot of white to give a crisp modern feel. I do all my graphic design in Photoshop Elements and then use Coffee Cup to work the layout. This blog has also be designed to blend in with the new look of my website.
 


 
I am still working with the printed leopard mink fur creation which is very close to completion and will be revealed soon.
 
 
The ladybug bear that was listed on Bearpile yesterday has found a new home.

Petal the ladybug

Little petal the ladybug bear is available for adoption, she is made from a medium brown mink with hand coloured lilac accents. Petal stands just 5 1/2 inches tall, her face has been extensively scissor sculpted to reveal her round cheeks and little chin. Her removable lady bug bump is made from wool felt, glass beads and embroidery cotton.
 


 
Petal has found a new home.

The leopard printed jacket from last week has been deconstructed and has given me a wonderful amount of useable fur and also some leather pieces that I may be able to use for paw pads. I have started a project from this fur and will have it finished soon and available for adoption.

 I have finished the panda from last week and named her Polly. Recently I did a commission bear for a customer who wanted a coloured nose and I was so happy with the look that I gave one to this bear. It is a great way to bring a pop of colour to the neural tones of the mink fur and coordinated with accessories.

Polly was available for adoption on Bearpile  yesterday and quickly found a new home.

The commission lion that I have been working on has been finished and is on the way to his new home in the United States. Simba was made from a medium brown recycled mink fur with a white muzzle insert, his mane and tail tip are made from sable fur.

The wonderful leopard printed mink fur jacket has arrived and is in great condition. I will be soon  begin deconstructing it and salvaging the fur, some of the leather panels may be useful for paw and feet pads.
 
 
I have returned to work on the panda from January 14 who I hope to have finished and ready for adoption soon.
