Gilli - 11" Hand Dyed Mohair and Alpaca Artist Bear by Emma's Bears - OOAK
By Emma and Mark Nicholson
Gilli is a funny little bear, cut from a piece of experimentally dyed curlylocks mohair that ended up a gorgeous rich gold colour with a froggy-green backing. For contrast we've paired this with a piece of hand-dyed alpaca in golds and yellows.
Gilli has a ridiculously large hand embroidered lemon yellow perle cotton nose and he looks out through a pair of our hand painted glass eyes in greens and coppers, and finished with droopy hand sculpted eyelids. He is fully T-pin jointed and firmly stuffed with a mix of polyfill, steel and glass shot.
Gilli's hands and paws are made from trimmed back mohair to show off the gorgeous green backing, and feature our 3D shaped toes and fingers. He has some inktense shading and highlighting to his face and paws and he wears a polished stone pendant (unakite as far as we can tell) around his neck.
Gilli is a one of a kind artist bear.
