above, picking up MY baby bear from 'eastworks', and you can see the proposals sitting onthe floor in the background. a lot of people are painting them, some are adding things like wire and plaster. mine will be a mosaic.
What I had to to was submit an idea, in the form of a drawing, of what I wanted "to do" to my bear. I was chosen with my design using fused glass and glass tiles to be mosaiced all over the bear. The title will be 'hiding bear', and he should end up looking like he is hiding in (glass) bushes. I applied to mosaic two bears, but only got one, so I have to alter my design a little. No problem! Im crafty.
