She is made with 30%wool and 70% rayon which I get from Craft Arena, the nicest wool mix felt I have found. Her wings are made from tissue paper, painted and glittered.
For the last 18 months, I have been working on and off on Captain Sparrow (Johnny Depp's character,) and with another doll workshop with Ray Slater fast approaching, it was time to finish him. On Wednesday night, late, I thought I had, and showing the 'finished' doll to my husband, he said, 'shouldn't he have a cutlass?' and after a bit of research, yes, he should!!!!!!
So this is where it stopped for quite a long while - last summer to be exact, before being put aside again.
There is a guide on the website I found that tells you exactly what beads and charms to put in his hair, but depends on which film as to what beads and talismans he has. This required me to make a ships sail needle out of paper clay, and painted with Powertex to make it strong.
Now all I have left to do is make the baldric sword belt and frog! Hope to be back later on in the week with my finished doll.
