So, I made this little fairy, about three years ago. I sculpted her from that flabby white sculpey and was a little disappointed. I didn't know I was working in completely the wrong kind of clay for this kind
of thing. Anyway, I made her, slapped on some fuzzy hair, glued on some dead bug wings and hung her on the fairy tree. I'd found the whole thing a little disheartening.
Today, thoroughly discouraged by the fact I have no water, and will be unlikely to have any for a month or so, I thought I'd take her down from the fairy tree and
see if I couldn't cheer myself up by giving her a make-over.
She'd long since lost her wings
and the frizzy hair hadn't done her any favours,
so I thought, why not?
I decanted some of my precious bottled drinking water into a jam jar
and dug out my brushes and paints.
I pulled off what I could of the nasty nylon doll hair and clipped the remainer buzz-cut short.
I painted the fairy in a light peachy colour and got a squint from painting her tiny little face, which is somewhat smaller than my fingernail.
She needs some rouge (don't we all?) to contour her face and limbs and Hubby has decided she's a redhead, after seeing her in various wig options. I hope to post her, more or less finished but undressed, sometime tomorrow. After phoning plumbers and diggers and engineers and the bank
Could I possibly use your bathroom?
