Troll Babies and Retiring Pixies

My doll making muse has finally made it back which is good as I have a show next week and I wanted some new items. Sadly the Cornish Pixie Elf muse is still missing and probably enjoying Mojitos on a nice beach somewhere.

So back to dolls I've made a fresh batch of Troll Babies there is four this year including two girls. I've decided to just have a small amount of these in the summer and the same will happen with the witch brooches I will just make so many in September ready for Halloween.

There will be a few larger dolls coming soon and I've written an list to remind myself, but there are more witches planned with possibly a large witch.

And now for the Cornish Pixie Elves and a few of them will be going to the retirement home for Cornish Pixies. Some of those are Halloween ones but I'm hoping to have some new Halloween and Christmas Cornish Pixies soon.

Whimsical and Spotty Pixie Elves.

I've been busy painting three new Cornish Pixie Elves one is a bit different to my usual style but it was nice to paint. So I painted two small Pixie elves in some new matt paint (I got some more matt chalk paints and shimmery paints) and the other is a larger pixie as I needed the larger size for the decoration.

 The green chalk paint is a really nice fresh colour and I really like it. The yellow in the bottle it looks like a clotted cream colour, but it dried to a pale ochre yellow. I teamed it up with a creamy felt hat at first I really wasn't sure but I have to admit I really like the more rustic look of the yellow.

I'm working on some new lines and I'm busy with some mixed media work amongst some other ideas. The mixed media work has been mainly painting whimsical girls in water colour and acrylic. As I wasn't sure what to paint I ended up painting one of my whimsical girls onto the larger Pixie Elf.

All three of these will be available in my Etsy Shop over the next week and you may find them popping up on Facebook. I will also try to get the Mermaid canvases I have partially painted finished and then photographed ready to show you. And I'll be looking at retiring some of the Pixie Elves in the next few months as well as think about Halloween and Christmas Dolls and Pixie Elves. 

Until next time.
