One Of A Kind realistic soft sculpture by Francesca Boretti
Clouded leopard NUBE
NUBE 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 baby.
MEASURES: 19.6 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: Nube has a lightweight Fimo clay sculpted head on which fur has been firmly attached. His eyes are transparent glass cabochons that I hand painted in tones of golden green. His paw pads have been sculpted from Fimo clay and layer painted, for a very realistic effect. Extensive shading has been made to head and body, the typical clouded leopard spots have been hand painted. Head and paw fur has been scissor sculpted.
JOINTING and POSING: Nube’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 he can be arranged in many different and realistic positions. His paws can be delicately curved to give them a natural pose.
NUBE owns an embroidered felt mat also sewn by myself.
As with all my creations, he comes to you with a specially embroidered felt birth certificate made in matching style and materials.
