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 commission piece client wanted a Joan of Arc christmas tree topper. The fabric painted with a hand made stamp and then additional color is added to the fleur de lis with a blue pencil. I found this great silver and gold pleather for the upper body. Her face is an alter photo that is then color with pastel and colored pencils. the armour on her head is hand crocheted silver thread.

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.
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.
