BEARNARD (REALISTIC BROWN BEAR) STANDS 26IN (61CM)
Bearnard. Made for: Teddies’08 (14 September 2008)

Obtaining fabric that is the right colour, density and pile length for realistic bears is a perennial problem for us and we can only make the large ones when we come across something suitable. Bearnard is made from high quality 30mm brown faux fur, with grey low lights,and toning blonde inserts to his nose and inner ears. Jean has also softly air brushed these around the nose, eyes and ear tips to blend the two fabrics together. Bearnard has a double neck joint plus joints in each wrist in addition to the usual one at each hip and shoulder. He is firmly stuffed with a combination of wood wool and polyester and his body contains 2 growlers; his eyes are black glass surrounded by lifelike eyelids and the 3D polymer pads on dark brown ultrasuede have been needle sculpted and airbrushed to give them greater definition. The final result is amazing – he is a magnificent big brown bear!
