Tips for Making Wildlife Fibre Art

It took me a few days to figure out how I was going to do the bear claws on these wildlife bears.  Finally I came up with a solution that is quite realistic looking and definitely moves the bear from looking like a cuddly creature to a wildlife animal deserving respect and personal space. Their claws were made with very thin cloth wrapped floral wire dipped in melted beeswax. I also had to figure out how to secure them, which took a few days to think through how I would do that.  Here is the result!
