Chihuahua “Bublik”

Name: Chihuahua “Bublik”
Edition: one of a kind
Size: 35 cm
Used materials: alpaca mohair
Eyes: Bublik has soulful black glass eyes with movable upper and lower eyelids
Nose: realistic epoxy clay nose, it was hand sculpted and painted, then sealed by me
Mouth: an open/close mouth with leather tongue, hand sculpted and carved epoxy clay teeth.
Claws: hand sculpted and carved by me from epoxy clay
Joints: 5-way jointed, lock line inside for realistic posing possibilities, armature inside ears
Paw pads: each paw was needle felted with hardening technique from high-quality wool to give them a more realistic look, then shaded
Filling:  polyfil, wool and steel pellets
Used techniques: sewing, felting, sculpting, open-close eyes and jaw
More detail: “Bublik” has moveable upper and lower eyelids, and can be posed awake or deep asleep. He has also open/close mouth; his ears are wired and can be posed whatever you like. He is made to stay on his four legs, lay or sit. Because of all this detailed work, I will never be able to create another dog like Bublik.
