Several people have asked for a description of my work so here it is.
Her name is Windy and she has the palest skin and she has been painted with many layers of heat set oil paints. They give her a life like appearance. She is made without the use of a mold as are all of my Soft Body Babies. I have mixed several types of polymer clays with a base of prosculpt to give this little one a translucent skin color almost a waxy appearance. Her body is soft pink knit and been lightly weighted. Her hair is fine mohair wool which I have dyed baby blond. She has beautiful large hand blown blue/grey eyes. I do not use clothing patterns and many of my materials are vintage so the babies wear one of a kind outfit too. This sweet one is wearing a vintage white cotton dress with handmade lace trim. I found this piece of fabric during my travels through the mountains of New England. It was a beautiful ruffle of an old dress. I was thrilled to have enough for this set. Her tiny dress has been decorated with Halloween green heart shaped button beads. I have crocheted a pretty navy and orange sweater and matching bonnet using the finest threads. It will keep her warm on those cold October nights.They are decorated with little silk ribbon rose buds and bows. Windy’s furry friend kiTin was created just for her. He is plush fiber and has green bead eyes, thread embroidered details and silk ribbon accents. So… then came this wonderful piece of soft worn muslin and a pumpkin appeared….lol! It didn’t just appear it took many hours of work to transform it…lol! A little handmade thread crocheted and green colored doily was added for the leaves and now she has a little something to curl up on. Oh, we must not forget a tiny matching pillowcase for those Trick or Treat goodies! It will arrive filled with little surprises. All of my work comes with a signed certificate of authenticity.
