Garden Pixie Online Workshop at

Garden Pixie Workshop

Wouldn’t you love to find this little pixie dancing around in your flower garden?  She is a 12” figure with a wire armature body and cloth over clay face.  She is dancing in the center of a rose which is resting on a pedestal.  Very sweet…very fun to make!

What you’ll learn:
  •  Body armature for a fully articulated figure
  • Wrapping a body with batting to create muscle (cloth over wire wrapping)
  • Needle sculpting to define the body
  • Posing a body to achieve whimsical effects
  • Simple ways to mount a figure on found object(s)
  • Cloth over paper clay face
  • Soft delicate face painting techniques using acrylic paint
  • A super easy technique for making tiny fingers
  • Whimsical costuming & embellishing including petite garden slippers
  • Fun techniques to age wood and other found objects

This is such a fun class.  The techniques taught give a lot of room for self-expression and each doll turns out so unique!
