Glimmer - 15" kid mohair Artist Baby Dragon by Emmas Bears - OOAK
By Emma and Mark Nicholson
15" (38cm) x 12" (30cm)
This is a VERY special creation to emerge from the Emma's Bears Studio - a stunning soft sculpture baby dragon.
Glimmer is made from some of our super soft curly kid mohair, hand-dyed in a wonderful multi-tonal mix of violets, blues and lavenders. She is fully 5-way jointed (head and all four limbs), so can be placed in a standing position, but prefers to sit due to the weight of her chunky tail. She is stuffed well with polyfill, steel and glass fill. Her belly gusset and spine-spikes are sewn from a gorgeous quilting quality 100% cotton fabric in a custom printed dragon scale pattern. Her inner ears and paw pads are cut from a pink faux suede. We've hand-pulled her toes and fingers and intricately shaded them in pigments to complement her mohair colouring.
Glimmer looks out through a pair of our large hand-painted glass dragon eyes in flecks of violets and pinks. We've hand-sculpted her eyelids and horns in super strong epoxy, tinting them with a shimmery metallic silver acrylic to throw the light in just the right dragony way. She wears a simple blue-tone flower charm on her forehead (fully removable).
Her petite baby dragon-wings are also handmade in expertly shaped leather, hand painted in acrylics and throw the light beautifully. They are sewn in place, but very easily removed if you prefer (just cut one of the threads holding them on and they'll come away easily).
Glimmer is a one of a kind artist creation. Her friends 'Nero' and 'Moondance' are available in their own listings.
