Wayneston Bears proudly presents Annabelle.
I can say Annabella is one of the best that I have ever created.
Annabelle is made from my friend's bear pattern (Joanne Livingston of Dessertmountainbears).
It's my honor to have this chance to create this special bear. If you have read more about me on my earlier blog post, I started making bears because of her works. Joanne is the source of my inspiration, she is a great friend and a great mentor, I would like to take this opportunity to thank her.
It took me approximately 10 hours to root the fur individually into the needle felted face of Annabelle. I broke 5 felting needles in order to finish her face. I am glad that I have enough felting needles to complete her and now I need to order new stocks for my next bears.
This is the 2nd time I tried felting a face, the first time was Caspian, the monkey swapped with Joanne. This is also the first time I air-brushed a bear's face.
Annabelle has wire and lockline armatures on her limbs, neck and spine. you can pose her easily. Her nose is hardened, sealed, sanded, painted and sealed again in many layers.
I hope you will like my new bear Annabelle, she is now available for adoption on Bear Pile.
