A Dancing Flame - Summer 2010

For the past few days..weeks even, it has felt more like Winter then Summer.  We have gotten maybe 1-2 days of Summer then we plunge straight back into Winter weather again.  My little fire Fay was to be a spark, some warmth in all this cold weather, little did I realize just how much warmth.

Dancing Flame has turned out to be my first fairy of the season for Summer 2010. With all this cold weather  I had not expected to see her till early next year... She, it seems had other plans.  All she is waiting for now is her plaque and she will be finished.

A Dancing Flame

About two months ago I was out shopping with my mother and we came across two lovely lanterns, one a dark tarnished brown colour and the other a painted white, both of us thought of my art dolls and how beautiful they would look inside the lanterns.

I decided on a fire fairy for the dark lantern and a sort of serene off-white rose fairy for the white lantern.

I started work on my Fire Fay the other day, she is coming along quite well. She will be a poseable art doll, about 7 inches tall, with largish silk wings. She will be going inside the dark tarnished brown lantern.

She is in the oven now for her final baking, I had to add extra to her upper arms to bring them down further for the dress I have decided to make for her (...at this moment anyway) will show more of her arms and chest.


The Shadows of Nightswood

As promised my goon Boggut. A rather unfriendly looking fella, he is my first art doll from the shadow of Nightswood. He was a gift to a family friend, someone who has always been there whenever there was a need for advice or just a laugh.

Boggut stand alone guarding the overgrown and twisted path that winds its way into the shadows of Nightswood.

New wings + Silk wings!!

I have spent the past week devoted to creating silk wings, and by creating I mean figuring out how on earth to make them!!  It has been a quite an interesting process, alot of trial and error. In the end they worked out quite well. Far better then I had hoped.

I have seen some lovely silk wings on the net but they were all to 'thick' looking for me.  I wanted my silk wings to be very fine, delicate and above all transparent!! A fine whisper of a wing.

I have also been playing around with wire and making some crowns to go with my wings, very frustrating at times, I don't even want to know how many beads I have lost to the floor!! I swear they have a mind of their own.

On another note I have finished a new Art Doll, he is to be a gift to a family friend. He is a Goon and is quite unfriendly looking. The very first doll from the darker side of Nightswood, will post a pick of him once he has arrived at his new home.
