~VINTAGE VINNIE~



Vintage Vinnie was so much FUN! He has a paperclay head, that I have "sugar-coated" with glass glitter for that olde-thyme look...he SPARKLES like freshly fallen snow. He has tons of "vintage appeal" and that is what I love about him! I made for Vinnie a little SNOW sign, that is attached to his hand/arm, but is removeable...
All of the silver glass glitter is "REAL" and will tarnish over time. The star on the hat, was made some time ago and is already tarnishing. I have hand stitched wire tinsel around his jacket, sleevs and pants. Vinnie comes complete with his 3 glass glittered snowballs...after all, no snowfolk would be complete with out them :)
Vinnie has lots of dimensional features on his face, but it was hard to "capture" that in the pictures. Vinnie is adorable in person and is my first clay head dollie, that will be for sale on Ebay, starting this evening. He will be listed for only 3 Days. I have enjoyed dabbling in clay and will contiue to here and there. I really enjoy working with paperclay :)

Other then Vinnie, I am still working on my special order. I had to take a wee bit of a break from it, as it was more then one item (3 to be exact) and it is taking more time, then I originally thought :) I am almost done thou and they should go out tomorrow. I hope you have all had a blessed day and take care. ~Tonya
