To create the fuzzy texture of this bear puppet, I used a needle felting technique to push felt in to shape around a wire skeleton and tiny taxidermy eyes. I incorporated a spectrum of shades to give a characterful colour texture, and sculpted the nose from Sculpey before moulding and casting it in Platsil Gel 10 silicone (along with a soapy release agent to divert any disasters).
