NIKOLAI I, II AND III
Nikolai I, II and III
Obtaining mohair that is the right colour, density and pile length for realistic bears is a perennial problem for us and we only make the large ones when we can buy something suitable. Nikolai 1 is made from 30mm brown mohair with toning shorter pile inserts to his nose and inner ears. Jean has also softly air brushed around the nose, eyes and ear tips to blend the two fabrics together. Nikolai 1 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 a growler; his eyes are black glass surrounded by lifelike eyelids and the 3D polymer pads on dark brown ultrasuede have been needle sculpted to give them greater definition. The final result is amazing he is a magnificent big brown bear! (Nikolai II and III were made from the same fabric but the rolls were slightly different shades)
