I made these pixies to donate to A Matter of Taste wine tasting and auction benefiting the Nevada City School of the Arts. I have not made a pixie like these in almost a year. Now that my time is limited each day, they take awhile to finish. If I do too much in a day, my forearms ache and my fingers go numb for a long time. It's a bummer because I do love creating them!
I did find a better tool this time. I worried about the faces because my hands are getting shakier. But I found a marking pen that looks very similar to the paintbrush. Much easier. I made some extra faces so I can slowly create more fairies over the next few months. My daughter reminds me that I promised a mermaid for her :)
Better get to work :)
If you are interested in bidding for these pixies, come to A Matter of Taste in Nevada City on March 13. Awesome-fun!
