... introduces "Neytea and Scandi"
Adorable Baby Snowy Owlets...
~*~ on a 7 day listing ~*~
I'm thrilled to introduce two sweet Snowy owlets ~ just finished today! I've named them Neytea and Scandi after the snowy owl's Latin name “Neytea Scandiaca”. The snowy owl nests on the ground, but these little babies needed something warm to cuddle in, so I hand knitted them a little nest.
Creating and photographing Neytea and Scandi was so much fun! They are such warm bundles of fluff and are so hard to put down... it's so fun to pose the two of them! I hope you love them as much as I do!
Neytea and Scandi are one of a kind artist baby baby owlets completely designed and hand sewn (no machine sewing) by me, Melisa Nichols. They are very detailed and as such they are their own unique individuals and can not be duplicated ~ true one of a kinds. Many, many hours went into these babies! I do not work with patterns or molds - just from photos and drawings, so there are no pattern they can be remade from.
Neytea and Scandi are made from very soft and luxurious vintage recycled blond mink fur from a vintage stole. Neytea and Scandi have been completely lined as are all my recycled fur creations. They are about 2.5 inches tall.
Neytea and Scandi's sweet baby faces are very detailed. Their faces have been scissor sculpted and thread sculpted. They have soulful black glass eyes and moveable eyelids - they can be posed awake, sleepy or asleep (their eyelids close as far as shown in the photos). I hand sculpted one of a kind realistic epoxy clay beaks for them which I hand shaded and sealed. Because this detailed work has so many variables, I will never be able to create more baby owlets just like Neytea and Scandi.
Neytea and Scandi have realistic feet with individually wired toes and epoxy resin and wire claws which I created to give them extra realism. They've been shaded and sealed. Their wings have armature as well.
Neytea and Scandi are completely hand sewn and filled with polyfil, pellets (in their tummies), and an extra portion of cuddles. They are armatured for lots of fun poses!
