Teddy - Pyrros
Today i would like to show you Pyrros.
He is 30 cm - 12 inches - tall, a OOAK (One Of A Kind) Collectors Teddy.
Although as you can see, he loves the attention of the camera, the photographs simply do not give this stunning teddy the justice he deserves.
He is made of the finest silken faux fur, a bright red with black tips.
His large black German glass eyes gaze slightly deceitful from his hand-felted face.
The dry felting process uses a single needle to manipulate wool roving into shape, making his features truly one of a kind, and unique.
His paws are also needle felted and heavily thread sculpted from mohair wool.
After finishing the long felting process his face and his paws are very carefully shaded with the best oil paints. This again takes many hours.
He has extensive pose ability, as he has bolt jointed limbs.
Even with his heavy sculpted feet he is able to stand free and alone and he doesn't mind which way he sits or stands as long as he fills your heart with pride.
Pyrros was made in a smoke- and pet free environment.
His new family will receive him in his own pretty box with a special birth certificate showing his date of creation and signed by the maker.
