Two of my favorite things to sculpt are Santa figures and bears. I usually manage to include at least one bear with each of my Santas, in less of course he's a Nosse then there will be a mouse. This time when I started making Santa's bag of toys and trying to decide what toys to include I came to the conclusion that this was a bear run, or a Beary Christmas.
I sculpted this Santa in his newest incarnation. When I made the one in the last post he was one of three that I started at nearly the same time. There is one more of this type that I'm presently working on that's nearly completed, and perhaps the one I started the other day will be another since I rather like this latest look and hope you do too.
My son thought that I was making two that looked alike and he said, "I thought each of your Santas was going to be one of a kind." Well, they are. I never plan to make a duplicate of any of my pieces. There are no molds used for these and even though some may appear to be related, they will always be one of a kind. To show you what I mean about resembling one another here is the latest Santa with the one I showed you on my last post.
The one on the left is from before and the one on the right is the newest one. Brothers or cousins? Maybe.
This is the second figure that I've had wearing a belt, and I have to admit I really like the look. Also, this new look for Santa has fur only around the hat.
This is of course the bag of bears. All five bears are different from one another including the color of their fur.
It's a bit hard to see from the photo that there are three colors of stripes on his coat. Once again I was going for a muted look.
I hope you enjoyed seeing another of the gang. I'll be back in a few days with another one of the guys so feel free to join us.
Thanks for stopping by.
