At last! I sculpted these three black bears a week ago or so, and it took me this long to get pictures and list them on https://www.etsy.com/shop/TouchstoneCreations" target="_blank">Etsy. My camera's memory card was filled up, and I kept not getting around to buying a new one or at least taking off some of the old pictures so I could get the bears out there.
These bears were a bit of a challenge for me, as I wanted them to have a more realistic look to them than my stone-look bear has, but I am pleased with they way they came out at last. The sculpting took a while. I wanted three different positions for my black bears. I roughed them in, then let them sit, covered, overnight, before detailing and finishing them. I have found that this works best with more complex pieces, as resting the polymer clay helps it cool a bit so the pieces don't squish out of shape while I am finishing them.
