Well he is done. He has been a real work in progress. I made the head in a class I took several years ago & really liked it. Always wanted the body to be as good. His armature includes a rib cage. I used Lisa Lichtenfel's body technique. I was using it for a little girl and botched the pelvis so it was perfect for the elf. My sister came up with the idea of the suspender idea with the buttons and I love how that looks. He will being going to live with her after his public debute at the "B Street Bookstore in Hayward, CA" this month.

This is a redo. I originally made this doll with a cloth head and really didn't like it. This is the first time I have tried Christmas tree topper with a polymer head. I like the cloth because they are not as heavy but she looks good.

Custom Christmas Tree Topper

This Christmas tree topper was created by a customers request. He like the pink and gold angel but asked for something that had an asian theme. the dress and wings are hand embroidered. I created the sticks in her hair by taking skewers cutting painting and cover with clear nail polish to create a shine. then I glued on gold thread with beads attached.

Christmas Exchange

This doll was created for our clubs christmas exchange. I did the colors specifically in mind for Colleen. I really like how the face turned out. I altered a photo of the mona lisa and this is how it turned out. I like it really goes with the colors. You can't see but her body and wings have a lot of hand embroidery.
