WIP Status Report

Alrighty then, he's been painted and assembly begins.  I think I should shorten his arms a tad.  'Rummaged through my tea chest of old fabrics and found a bit of threadbare faded dark green  velvet that seems promising, but I am now undecided whether short pants or a skirt.  And I think I need to add some shadows to the insides of his hands.

Next steps, make pants or skirt and jacket of faded velvet with lace collar and cuffs; search for small buttons; decide how to stand the little wretch in his burnt sewing console drawer, I think on a pile of burnt matches with torched wall paper.  Maybe painted flames?  B Is For Burned? The plot thickens.


  1. do you need tiny antique shell buttons complete with verdigris? i can send you some. they are teenie, tiny though.

  2. ...I love this! I've been following his progress via feed but just had to come out of the shadows and say what a wonderful job you are doing - fantastic! :o)

    ...And that face! [swoons]

    ...Have a lovely weekend!

    ...Peace & blessings. :o)

  3. What a nice transformation. He's wonderful.
