Ella and Georgina make their first Teddy Bear!

Last weekend, Ella and Georgina came to Wayneston Studios to learn how to make a Softie Bear.

Accompanied with their parents, both of girls are so excited to attend the workshop. Wayne prepared the bears with the girls favorite colour in advance before the workshop.

Ella's father came to help

They first inserted the bear's nose and stuffed the bear. Wayne later showed them ladder stitching technique to close the opening of the bear after stuffing and how to apply string jointing method to make movable arms for the bears.
Ella's father and Georgina's mum also came by to help the girls. 

At the end of workshop, the girls accessorise their bears with a ribbon around their neck. Wayne gave both of them a certificate of completion and they proudly wrote their bears name and birth date on the card.

We want to thank Ella and Georgina parent for their support to make this workshop a success. Well done Ella and Georgina!

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Reynard the Baby Fox now available for adoption!

We are very pleased to introduce a brand new creation named Reynard!

A few weeks ago, Wayne posted an image of a piece of beautiful fur and a pair of green doll eyes on Facebook. His doll teacher, Carmel saw and made a comment: "Wow, these would be a nice combination to make a fox!"

Without hesitation, Wayne replied - Challenge Accepted!

Wayne loves to create, this is probably what he feels he enjoys the most. Every morning when he wakes up, he would ask himself - What am I going to create today?!

Creating a fox is definitely one of the many to-do items in his wish list, he thought if not now, when?!

Hence, he took this opportunity to challenge himself again. He looked into books on Taxidermy and internet images for references to get inspiration.

Although the final outcome seemed a little different from his expectations, he was very pleased with his creation. He could proudly tell everyone, this is probably the best he has ever made till date!

The highlight of the fox, features a locline armature built on his limbs and a long locline armature which links from the head, spine and tail.

His paws and foot pads are appliqued with needle sculpting techniques.

The most intricate part is the use of glass doll eyes and the full needle felted face. Each strand of fur on his face is inserted individually to give a unique expression to the baby fox.

Wayne also applied air brushing to give shading and tones to the body of the fox. A blue jumper outfit is also specially designed by Wayne to fit his playful attitude.

Reyard is now available on our website. Do check him out!

We hope you will like him as much as we do. We look forward to more exciting creations this year!
