My latest creation...OOAK (one of a kind) art doll winter fae. She stands 12 1/2 inches tall on her crackle painted base. She is hand sculpted from polymer clay. Dressed in burgandy satin, teal blue ribbon like yarn with matching tulle over skirt. She has soft dark blonde mohair locks that I fashioned into an updo and adorned with matching fabric, and beaded lace like embroidered fabric (like that on a wedding dress). Her sleeves are done in scrunched vintage blue velvet. She has a white rabbit fur muff on her hands that matches the fur on her head piece. Her wings are irridescent teal green with a touch of extra fine maroon glitter. Perfect for a winter, snow, or Christmas & Holiday display.

Thanks for stopping in!

OOAK Snowman Ornament

I just listed this cute little snowman ornie on ebay. He's hand sculpted from paper clay, so is very light weight yet durable. He has been hand painted (HP) and stained to add that vintage antique look..kind of rustic don't ya think? He is wearing a red and green stocking cap, and of course the traditional carrot nose!
