Oz revisited in extreme miniature!

Hi friends. I have been busy..and not sleeping much. no, these are not the dolls featured in my last three posts, these are all about 1/2 that size!  I created yet more OZ fun! These are all very tiny! As you can see compared to the spool of thread! each figure is just 3.5 inches total height. I am happy with the work I have done here. It was a lot of fun. Guess I should make Glinda, and the Wizard too, but stopped here for now. Penny, I tried needle felting, and came up with a tiny Toto! Hes a furry little 1 inch likeness!

 This set is listed on ebay now. xoxo Christel

p.s. I added a couple of photos of TOTO, hes a little needle felted furball! It was a first attempt at needle felting, and not a great one, but at least you can recognize Toto! :)

Hello everyone. You know I didn't realize the monkeys were blue from Oz, not until I was commissioned to create one! Boy, was this ever fun! His jacket and hat are hand painted, that was no easy task!

The ~ Cowardly Lion ~

Hello friends, thank you all for your recent visits! Well, this is my version of the Cowardly Lion! I think he turned out pretty well, in hindsight, I would have preferred his head a slight bit smaller, and body a slight bit taller. But you get the jist! :)

The ~ TinMan~

Hello friends, Yes, you guessed it, it is indeed another nostalgic piece, commissioned by the lovely lady who purchased the Scarecrow posted here last week. I had so much fun creating the TinMan, and am now "working" on the Cowardly Lion..he's proving to be quite a challenge, but we will see! Hope you are all having a great week so far. The weather is beautiful here in Ky. it's 63* and lots of sunshine. Certainly feels like fall. Tomorrow it is supposed to rain, and get much colder, so it will feel like winter! Hope the sun is shining where you are! XOXOXO   Christel

Nostalgic ~ Scarecrow ~

Hello Friends! I am excited to show you my version of the Scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz! He is fully pose-able. I have him listed on eBay now.  I created him using a three wire armature wrapped in fiberfill, and then cloth tape. His head, hands and feet were sculpted, and painted with Genesis Heat Set Paints. I created his eyes too. I am very happy with his outcome, and his pose ability! He makes me smile, and feel nostalgic, I hope he brings you a smile too! Thanks so much for coming to visit. XOXOX Christel
