I just shipped another set of figures for the Thistle Threads Door'd Mirror and just had to share them ~ they came out so cunning I love them! Instead of requesting the generic King & Queen, the buyer requested they be painted to resemble her & her soon to be hubby.... (Congratulations Leslie Ann! ). So instead of my normal palette of browns for the bows and eyes, I painted them up in shaded greys
I think I prefer the grey palette! Does not the King look far more Noble and Handsome in his aged distinction?
And a precious blushing bride~ her eyes just sparkle with excitement!
These figures are by far the most challenging little wee ones to sculpt~ their entire heads are smaller than my thumbnail. Even so, I do my best to breathe life and spirit into each and every one~ and not only what I have a vision of, but more importantly, what my customer envisions.
