This one of a kind sculpt (ooaks) is hand sculpted without the use of any molds. He has been detailed using acrylic paints, lambswool (sheared) for his hair and beard and vintage fabrics for his cape/hood. He has a strong wire armature underneath a fully wrapped yarn body or underclothing as I call it. ^_^ The sleigh he is riding in is truly a vintage ceramic piece. The lap throw is crushed velvet with a satin backing. The snowflake is one of my primitive embroidered designs. Small prism crystals are attached to each point of the snowflake. His bag is made from the same crush velvet and holds a sweet little rabbit, a big book, a wooden ladder truck, a gift bag filled with tiny goodies, a flocked teddy bear a tiny wrapped gift box and a soccer ball. (I think he has both boys and girls covered, eh?) He sits right at 9 inches. (the highest point being his fingertips on his waving hand) Santa and his bag are permanently attached to the sleigh.
I so enjoy designing and making my whimsical characters and I think Santa is my favorite. If you have been following along on my other WIP (work in progress) post of this piece then I'm fairly sure you are wondering why I made the sweater, pants and boots for him when no one will ever see them. Well...if they come here they can see them.....in the photos. I make my characters fully clothed no matter if they will be seen or not because I know they are dressed. Silly I know but that's just me!!!
