I used several shades of green for the vest, metallic gold for the buttons and buckle; and then a touch of green metallic pearl powder over the completed vest. The shoes were stippled in shades of brown and then covered with Tim Holz Copper alcohol ink. I made soles from tan Hearty clay and glued them to the bottom of the shoe.
As I mentioned in my last entry, I decided to go with Fall colors to dress my fairy. I cut pieces from some silk oak leaves and layered them together to make her skirt. When I added the clay vest I left a gap between the body and the vest, just under the waistline to allow room to glue in the skirt.
I blushed her body and face with Pan Pastels. I made a tiny wig cap from silk and attached fine kid mohair which I dyed a deep shade of Strawberry blonde. The curls were made by wrapping small pieces of damp mohair around a fine knitting needle and baking them at 200 degrees in my Deni Oven for about 5 minutes.
I made a little hat from a piece of antique lace, which I painted with Color Hue fabric paint and then sewed on tiny green metallic seed beads....I love adding all the little details. After sealing with a few coats of Krylon Matte, shes's finished. What do you think?
