Snow leopard ICICLE
ICICLE is OOAK. He has been entirely designed and hand crafted by myself in a smoke free house. Many hours of patient work have gone into the conception and creation of this snow leopard cub.
MEASURES: 19.5 inches (about 50 cm) from nose tip to rear end.
MATERIALS: high quality faux fur. Polyfil for the stuffing, with an addition of enclosed mineral granulate for added weight. Glass eyes, horse hair for the whiskers.
FEATURES: Icicle has a lightweight polymer clay sculpted head on which fur has been firmly attached. His eyes are of transparent glass cabochons that I hand painted in tones of light blue. His paw pads have been sculpted from polymer clay and layer painted, for a very realistic effect. Extensive shading has been made to head and body, the typical snow leopard spots have been hand painted. Head and paw fur has been scissor sculpted.
JOINTING and POSING: Icicle’s body has been designed with no joints. All four limbs are a whole with the body. He has an internal padded wire frame that goes from head to back, and from there to all four legs. The tail is also wired. Thanks to these features Icicle can be arranged in many different and realistic positions. His paws can be delicately curved to give them a natural pose.
Icicle’s felt flower was also hand sewn by myself. As with all my creations, Icicle comes to you with a specially embroidered felt birth certificate made in matching style and materials.
ICICLE is a collector item not suitable for children. This creation is meant for display and not as a toy.
Adoption fee: 2200 US Dollars
