About the course
While he is not exactly a Teddy Bear, this red panda is playful, cuddly and as cute as can be! Join Tami and learn to make one of these darlings for yourself. In this class we will employ many of the techniques we used in our “Making Artistic Teddy Bears” class, such as hand and machine sewing, needle sculpting and scissor sculpting the face and paws, and more while learning to address the unique challenges of working with extra dense synthetic fur. The main focus of this class will be designing and creating a more realistic animal with many posing options. We will learn to alter a basic bear head pattern, to design a non-jointed body pattern, to create a full body armature, and to employ techniques for creating distinctive markings.
In this course you will learn:
- Create natural articulation in your animals with a full body armatures.
- Design a pieced pattern for an animal with distinctive colors & markings.
- Using markers and inks for shading, stripes, spots or patches of color.
- To needle sculpt and scissor sculpt on extra dense fur.
- And much more!
