Snophie

 
My first attempt at creating a feline shape, Snophie is a snow leopard cub.

Snophie is made using synthetic plush fur and is fully jointed with wired legs, back and tail for posability. She is filled with a combination of polyfil, steel shot in the feet and tail end and rubber pellets too for a wonderfully sqeezable tum. Her eye sockets, nose and paw pads were made from polymer clay and the eyes are German glass. Her face has been needle/scissor sculpted and hand shaded. The whiskers are horse's hair and were supplied by Sheila of Shebob Bears. A big thank you to Sheila and to Mij the Shetland Pony of course!
