Cobi is a special request for a numbat (Myrmecobius fasciatus) similar to Bandit, who I created back in 2012.  They could be brothers.
Cobi has been created using white Schulte synthetic fur, mini bear fabric and ultrasuede.  He has been filled with a combination of polyfill, plastic pellets (in his tummy for weight) and rubber pellets (in his tail). He has cotterpin and hardboard jointed arms/legs and wire armature in his body/tail and all four limbs for poseability, including his cute individual fingers and toes. He has black glass eyes ringed by waxed cotton cord lids. His nose/claws have been sculpted from polymer clay with wire backs to allow for a secure attachment. His nose has been given a coat of gloss varnish for a healthy wet look.
Cobi has been extensively scissor sculpted and his delicate fur markings have been completely hand shaded using an airbrush. He measures approximately 4" in height when stood on all four feet and 7" from nose to bottom (not including his bushy tail, which is another 6" long).  Last but not least there is a fabric Arcas Designs tag sewn in under the base of his tail.
Cobi comes complete with his wooden perching stump which has little rubber feet underneath for display purposes.
