Happy Dance is my first sculpture piece, created by building over
a wire armature, from the inside out. Happy is 12 inches tall
(without his hat) His dancing pose is NOT changeable and is NOT
jointed, although his arms can be slightly repositioned. "Skin" is
cream alpaca fur.
Happy's face is needle felted for expression, with a needle felted
and hardened nose and blue-green glass doll eyes. Paw pads are
also needle felted and hardened; claws are sculpted epoxy clay.
Happy is shaded with oils and finished with a costume of artist
made top hat and vest with wired tails for posing. He stands with
the help of a brass rod to fit his custom wood stand with brass
tube, from which he can be removed for packaging.
