SCULPTURE Polar Bear close up by pixiwillow SCULPTURE Polar Bear close up by pixiwillow
Close up and size comparison of polar bear from East of the Sun West of the Moon illustrative sculpt.
I sculpted the bear from polymer clay and furred him by hand. Fur is applied bit by bit, not as a pelt, and was from recycled material.

Hi PixiWillow - I'm captivated by how you created this guy. Where did you learn to fur ?
That's actually something I've been thinking about a lot lately as something to incorporate into my sculptures.
Any information and advice you can give would be greatly helpful and massively appreciated.

When I started there really wasn't any information out there...at least that I could find. I wanted my figures to be more realistic, so I decided to try to extend the technique I used to apply hair to a figure on to the body as well. It just takes a lot of patience. Sometimes I'll redo areas multiple times, until I'm satisfied with the results, or just plain sick of trying. I feel like it can always be better, and I keep trying to make it that with each new piece. I dream of working with silicone, so I can use the punch tool furring technique...one hair at a time...rooted into the piece...ah, sweet perfection.

the fur must have been a pain in the butt... Im currently doing a sculpture, and adding the fur bit by bit. But yours is seamless. You can see heaps of the glue on mine :(
any tips?
