Been a long time!

Its been a long time since my last blog. I have been very busy and just kept putting it off until i realized half the year was gone!  I am still working on my museum and of course making figures. I started one recently for a customer. She wanted a pixie and gave me a picture to go by. Here are my results so far. I started with the sculpture on the botton and after sanding and painting and sealing, I added her eyes and eyebrows. I will post the results when I am finished.

  I was asked where I get my eyes. I have several places to go, Braylu makes very nice eyes and their iris can be painted from behind to enhance the color any hue you like. Puppets and props sells very nice eyes as well and has different categories. I also buy from doll suppliers throughout the internet. I do however make my own most of the time from wooden balls I buy at Joanns Fabrics or Michaels craft supplies. I all depends on the look I want to get.
