Off with the Frisket!
Next it's time to rub off the frisket. Bears, like me, have a very big sweet tooth, not to mention a penchant for salmon, squirrels and berries. I decided to shower this big guy with all the yummy bear snacks I could imagine. I spend time adding detail to the wonderful Christmas treats spilling out of his hat. I also pull out highlights on his fur by stroking a damp brush over the brown coat. This is a fun process and I have to make myself stop or I'll diminish the areas I want to keep in shadow.
