I have been working on the wire armature today along with getting the base painted with my special snow mixture. It takes at least over night to dry so it's not tacky. We can't have tacky snow, now can we? ^_^
Once I got the armature made and wrapped I made the middle body section....ya know...Santa's bowl full of jelly!! You will see in the WIP photo how I make my soft body characters. Don't panic though when you see the skinny white arms and bird legs and big green belly, I still have to wrap it up in the yarn. I love using yarn as the underclothing. I finished the felt boots today along with the sweater sleeves too. I think I have gotten a good bit accomplished even with all the
I'm thinking of doing some bead work on the boots but haven't really decided for sure yet. Santa's cloak usually hides most the shoes so I'm not sure I want to add that much to something that won't really be seen. Ya know...kinda like the toe issue!!
Until next time..........HUGS,
