One Of A Kind realistic soft sculpture by Francesca Boretti
German shepherd puppy
ULF 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 puppy.
MEASURES: 23 inches (about 58 cm) from nose tip to rear end.
MATERIALS: Luxury faux fur. Polyfil for the stuffing, with an addition of enclosed plastic pellets for added weight. Glass eyes. Head, jaw, paw pads and claws are made with lightweight polymer clay and Apoxie clay.
FEATURES: Ulf has a lightweight clay sculpted head on which fur has been firmly attached. His mouth can be opened and closed. I hand modeled and painted his lower jaw, teeth and tongue for a very realistic effect. His eyes are transparent glass cabochons that I hand painted in tones of black and dark brown. Paw pads have been sculpted from clay and layer painted. The claws are individually hand modeled and firmly attached to the paws. Head and body have been airbrushed.
JOINTING and POSING: Ulf’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. Tail and ears are also wired. His mouth can be opened and closed. His paws, ears and tail can be delicately curved to give them a natural pose. Thanks to these features Ulf can be arranged in many different and realistic positions.
I also designed and created a soft duck toy for Ulf to better enhance his cuteness and his ability to hold objects with his mouth.
As with all my creations, Ulf will come to you with a specially embroidered felt birth certificate.
Ulf is a collector item not suitable for children.
Adoption fee: 1550 US Dollars
