How-To: Clay Nose for a Teddy Bear


Give some extra dimension to your needle felted and sewn toys with the addition of a polymer clay nose. Francesca Boretti shares her technique on her blog, Kaleideascope.

I’m quite impressed with the life-like quality of Francesca’s soft sculptures, each one seems to have it’s own unique personality. I love that she puts up her creations for adoption, instead of for sale. It’s clear that these are a labor of love for Francesca, and her wish is that each one will go to a good home.


Get the step by step tutorial for sculpting a nose here. Francesca follows up with another great post on how to attach the nose, which you can find here.
