name :: Monster Dandelion

completed :: March 2013

size :: ~9" tall

materials :: faux fur, spandex, felt, hand-painted safety eyes, wire

notes :: The standard dandelions use a specific length of fur nap and stiffness of backing or they don't look right. When I ran out of the white fur I was using for them but kept getting requests, I followed through on the idea I'd had of monster flowers. The fun thing about mixing it up with the fur types is they come out quite different! Sometimes they look shy, other times quite petulant. The stems and leaves can be posed at different angles, and they can be removed from their "pots" if you desire. I just really hate gluing things. Life is impermanence and change. ;)
