This tiny fairy is now costumed and complete! She has organza that was melted into layered flowers on her skirt and pants. The top part of her skirt was an old shirt of mine that i tea dyed, and her shirt was gold and ivory ..also tea dyed...after I put the outfit together...It didnt work for me..., so I used a tiny brush and acrylic paint to add the pink to the shirt..., then I made some tiny clay flowers, dusted with perfect pearls...they were glossed and I added pink crystals.
Her boots were painted that same mauvy pink as the shirt ... adding ivory polka dots..glossed them and added crystals. Her tall crown is made of polymer, stamped for design and texture , dusted with perfect pearls ...metal findings and wires for holding gems were added before baking.

This new fairy is very small...she is a little smaller than the tiny dolls...She turned out kind of sad and she seems to be "longing" for something (hmm ..the accessories may express that) ...so I'm going with it!!! I was able to really smooth her parts out nicely sanding with a medium sponge, then sand/smooth with my micro sanding cloths at 400, 600 and 1200 grit (i am now selling them on ebay )!
Her Hair is natural lama hair ..not Dyed, its very soft and wispy..
I have put together some vintage Fabrics. and i found this weirdo fur scarf at a flea market last summer...maybe it will be the collar of her dress..... I will costume her over the weekend.
I want to paint pink/mauvey boots with tiny polka dots...i'll see what happens!! I'm thinking the Amber wings are going to go better with this idea now....
The wings i have with her...are too sparkly for this sullen fairy
