Shi the Panda
By Bears of Bath
8½ inches (21.5 centimeters)
I'm very pleased to introduce you to a very special and luxurious Panda bear called Shi who's name means 'Truthful' in Chinese. Who is patiently awaiting adoption. This special panda has shades of golden browns, ochres, black and white, and is so fluffy and soft : ) He is made from a brand new design especially created and has three beautiful faux fur fabrics, mixed with black faux cashmere.
He has the beautifully soft Schulte Ice White short pile woven backed 13mm luxury dense pile with guard hairs which I have used on his muzzle and his body is created with white and black mohair. His head is a mixture of extra long white 70mm faux fur and 70mm black long faux fur on his ears. His head is made from many separate pieces of fabric, shaped and mixed carefully.
This panda has been a labour of love spanning several days. I really wanted to sculpt him carefully and really bring him to life. Every part of him is created from new patterns designed to bring out something completely new.
His head has been carefully scissor sculpted and then gently shaded using acrylic paints to accent shadows and give him personality and life. He has 11mm English Black Glass eyes with white cashmere accents and black eyelids. His nose has been made from black cashmere, airbrushed in brown and black ochre then carefully sewn into place.
He is fully cotterpin jointed and filled with dense polyester filling for extra weight. When standing he is approx 8-9 inches high.
He has pretty gold cashmere foot pads.
He has a Carol's Bears label, sewn into his back.
This beautiful panda will arrive at his new home, carefully wrapped in a strong box, with his 'Carol's Bears' certificate of authenticity.
He is number 1856 in the Certificated Series Contact Artist
