The original is called Polar Bear on Ice Soap
The bear behind it was my first attempt at a clay polar bear, I wanted it to have the cartoonish feel the soap version did. That bear was cute, but a little big if I was to put her in a bowl of ice (for a charm)
So I played around with the clay and made a tiny bear, and created a youtube tutorial for the tiny bear
The blue was the first attempt at getting him tiny, and as he is sitting on a dime to give you a size reference. I felt that is he tiny enough, so I created the bowl, and filled it with liquid clay and glass glitter to make it look like an icy bath.
I am not sure if I will be making them for the shop or not. I thought the soap was so adorable, so I contacted the owner of FushichosGallery (Carol) and asked permission to create a tutorial for a miniature clay version. Carol was very kind, and allowed me to do it.
I know I said that I am perfectly happy with you all selling items from the tutorials I make, but if you want to sell these little guys please contact her and ask for permission. She is allowing me to sell them if I want, but I will be posting a link to her soap, and her shop in my listing. The last photo shows him on my index finger, so you can see how tiny he really is. I will film a youtube tutorial for him. Since he isn't miniature food like I usually make I didn't know if any of you would like a written tutorial as well. Let me know if you do. Thanks for stopping by!

ETA; I just finished the video tutorials :) I am working on the written tutorial now.
Here is the actual soap my little guy was inspired by. :)
