Because of the cracking, I decided to paint this little guy. Then sprayed him with Clear Car Paint (it was a little too cold for the paint and he didn't come out as shiny as I would have liked). However, all of these problems are just learning curves.
His hair is made from feathers, trousers and coat are made from wool, it looks like a frill, and the trims are Semi-precious Gem stones, Peridot and Sunstone. (although I think someone was telling me fibs with the Sunstone, I think they are man made ones). But the Peridots are real. I am very into gemstones and there healing properties. (But that is another story, xxx).
Oh! if anyone can tell me what some of you use to make your sculptures - dolls - statues shiny, please let me know. I like the shiny effect it makes the piece look finished.
Well dear friends, have a magic weekend and I hope to get back into things on a more regular basis. Take care. xxx
