Faery Baby Keepsake!!
The person placing the order wanted one of my wee faery keepsakes. I was in a quandry though, as I usually use preserved butterfly or dragonfly wings for these and I am completely out. HEY....have you ever looked around for wings....they don't just appear ya know...LOL!! I decided that since the paper bug has bitten me so hard that I would do paper wings. I found a beautiful vintage butterfly image and printed it on card stock....cut it out...embellished it and...POOF....beautiful one of a kind butterfly wings. I also did another card stock butterfly image but didn't embellish it....it's going to be the announcement card to go with the keepsake once the new arrival arrives!!!! It sits on a twisted silver wire with a tiny dragonfly charm attached.
I made a clay base that looks like a tiny tree stump.....washed it in acrylic paint to give it that old porcelain look. Then I used silk flowers to adorn the base with. The baby fae is a fully sculpted ooaks. Her face and details are painted with acrylics. Her hair is dyed lambswool....a pretty purple hue!! She is napping laying on top of the flowers. She is a tiny 2 1/2 inches long. The complete sculpt from base to wing tip stands at 5 inches tall.
If you ever need a ooak keepsake, keep me in mind and as always, thank you for dropping by. Until next time.....
