Slide of the Month Extra - Mini Bear

March 2020

Time to make: 2 hours

Finishing: 2 hour

Original design: Bill Macfarlane

Oh sure their cute but they are the most destructive bear at Philmont, or anywhere, and will chew through a backpack to get to a tasty snack. Ok, so this is another concept slide of mine. I was reading up on some of the areas in Philmont and the old west when I came upon a wanted poster. Well before you know it, out popped the mini bear outlaw idea.

Carved from southern yellow pine I modeled the chipmunk based on a couple of cartoon versions of them and came up with this fellow. I painted the slide with hobby paints but I forgot to paint the mouth. The lettering and the image for the Philfood were done on waterslide paper with a couple of coats of poly finishing it off.
