  • brown bear

    i am finishing this brown bear, i had brushed on brown acrylic, but even watered down it covered most all of the fur i burnt in. so i started to sand it off, and that grew light areas that looked like an old bear , so i took off on that tangent. and 4 coats of a gel satin topcoat. i just now read the name on the can, and that explains why i cannot get this thing shiny enough. jeez. brown bear.jpg

    Nice job Doc! Is that a rendition of Gene Webb's bear or is that a "Dr" original?

                      Hi Dr. , Good Job , Great Detailing. Got a Question , Why do you want the Bear to be Shiny ? Merle

                        interesting, i did ask myself that same question after it was done. i did expect the finish to be shiny and because it wasnt, i was disappointed in that, but i soon realized that being a bear, it ought not to be shiny at all. what it has here is plenty. quite a bit of the woodburned fur did fill in though, next time i will burn deeper which might mean it has to be coarser?

                          Hi Dr. , The hard part of doing a Carving and Finishing is to when to Stop . You have a nice piece of work and going by the Pictures it looks time to Stop. Be Proud of your Bear , I would. Merle

                              I love doing ruff out work, as you can focus more on the details.....he looks great. Painting it is a risk factor, I got an Indian ....decide to work on the paint ....I hated the job.....and no matter how many times I sand it off, ... I do not like it....it is better to move on with the next one.
