TINO- Nora's Teddy Bear

Tino's face and foo pads are sculpted in japanese clay, air dried in stages to avoid cracks, his facial features are colored with acrylics and powders, shaded in bronze; browns and pinks over a skin-color muzzle. His nose and paws are rich- dark brown. All colors are sealed in matt varnish. I work without the use of molds to give each bear his individual and unique personality.
His eyes are hand made in a special technique; enhance his amazing thoughtful expression. His left eye has a green tint and the right one a golden tint.
Tino is made from a gorgeous soft curly faux fur in goldish brown with lighter tips.
Tino wears a removable silk and tulle collar, in "smoked"- brown and burgundy shades, tied with bronze ribbon that compliments Tino's beautiful fur color.
Tino is 5 way jointed with double wire armature in his arms, he can be posed in endless ”serious" as well as playful poses. He is filled with fine poly-fill, (not too stiff so he can achieve his flexibility and softness). (more on ebay)
