Stag Mist Spirit -Handcrafted- Rhiannon Woolf by RhiannonWoolf Stag Mist Spirit -Handcrafted- Rhiannon Woolf by RhiannonWoolf
 :ilovedevart:  sold 

This stag spirit has been handmade from start to finish and has been created purely from my own imagination.
This soft sculpture can be posed to sit, stand, lay-down and stand on its hind legs.
I have hand sculpted the hooves, antlers and face with clay and used quality faux fur to hand sew the body and create detail. The eyes, nose and antlers are meticulously hand painted and the fur hand dyed.
I do not use patterns, casts, molds or references to create my work. As a result this is a unique display sculpture, not a child's toy.
Size: 18inches/45cm long,   14inches/35cm tall   (depending on how it is posed).

thats totally awesome, I really want to learn how to make these, how do you deal with puting the fur on and do you have any trouble with fragile parts breaking like the antlers?

Thank You 1 Speech Bubble - BeemoteThank You 2 Speech Bubble - Beemote 

I haven't had any trouble with the fragile parts like antlers (they all have wire on the inside to support them). Things like ears and claws can be fragile. To fur the face, put clear glue onto the face, cut a pinch of fur off your faux fur and then stick it on. I do it pinch by pinch in-order to try and create a more natural appearance. I made an awful tutorial here:  Fur Tutorial

ok, thanks for that =) I really wanna try and make these guys and the fur glowed on to face makes sence but im still kinda unsure on how the soft bodies work. wire then sewn somehow? and i noticed that certain areas of fur are longer than others(eg. tail and legs long and flowey then body a bid shorter) it looks great and realistic, so are there different sizes or do you just trim the body areas?

I hand stitch the fur fabric onto the wire bodies and trim the body fur so its the length I want :happy:
