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.
