Teddy bears have wonderful effects on people. Even the most hard-nosed pragmatist is moved to cuddle these bundles of fluff. With her great eye for character and her elegant simplicity of carving, Kelley Stadelman captures the spirit of the teddy bear in this step-by-step guide to carving. With color photographs illustrating each phase, from laying out the blank to painting and antiquing the finished product, the carver will enjoy transforming a block of wood into a lovable bear. One project, the “Teddy Bear Boy,” is carved completely for the book. In addition there are patterns for other bears, with a gallery to show the finished creations. This is a great book for carvers of all ages.
