Mini Santa is complete and going to school tomorrow.
Mrs. Haak's Mini Santa is complete. Sure hope he will like going back to school after all these years. Chaz is thrilled with him and of course wants me to make HIM one. He always wants one of everything I make but I explain to him that I can't do one exactly like it because that's what makes them "special' ooaks. One of a kind sculpts, never to be repeated. Of course.....there will be plenty more Santa's in the future, just not one just like this one.
I truly had fun with this one...hummmm, think I've said that about some other ooaks too...but it's true. I thought the hands would be a problem but they were the easiest thing to do. Painting those tiny baby blues was the difficult part. HOHOHO!!!!
Back of his cape and attached hood. Kinda reminds me of a Stevie Nicks cape.....hope I didn't just tell my age there. Hummmm, wonder if I could make me a felt cape/hood like this one? Something I'll have to work on!!!
I know I said Santa was 6 inches but if you are like me without some comparison, I can make that be LOTS bigger than it actually is. So with that being said, here is a photo with a normal size spool of thread. ^_^
As always, thank you for taking the time to stop by and look. Until next time,
