Folita has been created using a mix of four colours of Schulte
synthetic fabrics with ultrasuede paw pads. She has been filled with polyfill stuffing and has wire armature
in her arms, legs and back to allow her to pose the way a real sloth should.
She has realistic taxidermy eyes that have been set into specially constructed sockets with leather
cord 'eyelids'. Her nose has been sculpted from polymer
clay and her mouth from perle cotton thread. Her really enormous claws have been created from Apoxie
Sculpt and have been attached directly on to the wire in the arms and legs. They have been painted and covered
with a layer of matt varnish to seal in the colour.
Folita has been scissor sculpted and lightly airbrush shaded on her
face and pads. She is pretty much life-sized and measures approximately
17" from the top of her head to the tip of her cute little tail. Last but not least she has a fabric Arcas Designs tag
sewn in at the base of her back.
