MEET "WINTER"


About two years ago I began sculpting faeries out of polymer clay and probably finished about a dozen. I actually wear a jeweler's magnifiying visor to work in small detail. Several were gifts, a few sold locally, and some stayed here with me. This one I named "Winter". She is about 2 1/2" and she sleeps in a nest glittered with frost. Her hair is white mohair and her long trailing dress and head cap is glitter frosted white gauze. The little pillow is a white rose petal and there are several petals lining the nest under her. This little fae is heading out to an art sister for a swap that is a bit over due. We were to make a Winter Goddess, and I guess I took a bit of liberty. Instead of a paper doll or stuffed cloth doll, I felt I should do something a little more special since she was so gracious when I e-mailed her that I would be late.

I had to watch carefully because you-know-who was very jealous of her glittery nest lining!!
