Red..the painter, a ooaks in the Santa and his helpers series

**He has been in my own collection but I think he wants to go a visiting..hehe

If you could peek through the frosted windows at the North Pole you would see such a sight. All the tiny wee folkes making busy busy plans. There are hundreds of them...each having their own special task that Santa himself has given them. This is Red, the painter. He has such a talent for painting just the right toy with just the right colors. Take a peek....he is finishing up part of the alphabet train.

Red has a strong wire armature that is covered in a needle felted body. His face and hands are sculpted from Cernit clay without the use of any molds. His face and eyes are painted using acrylic paints. His hair is needle felted from carded dyed wool. His outfit is handsewn from different fabrics. His tiny elf shoes are made from felt and topped with tiny bells. His work station is sculpted from Prosculpt clay and then painted with acrylic paints. All his painting supplies are sculpted from clay and then hand painted. the alphabet train piece is made from wood and then the scene is hand painted. The table and train are attached to the wooden base but Red can be removed. He might want to sit close to you ;)

If interested in having Red come live with you, please email me for purchasing information. Thank you for looking and remember to check back as new pieces will be added from now until Christmas. Hugs, Regi
