Hmmmm... No Name W.I.P


I'm having fun with these little guys. I want to offer something in my Etsy shop that while not having the same amount of detail as some of my other work, will be cheaper. Little figures that will have charm and whimsy, but that someone won't hesitate over the price on.


I'm not sure yet just how the costuming will go, if I will fully paint them, what kind of fabric treatment I will use, or even what I will call these little guys, I do know that I am having a lot of fun with them. I will probably do various clothing/painting effects on them - I have several ideas scrambling around in my head. This is a new adventure for me as I tend to over-complicate most of the ideas I come up. This is very "freeing" LOL

hmmmm....but what to call them?

Hi Sue,
I think these wonderful figures may be related to the Pillywiggins...I read a story about them many moons ago and according to legend they are peaceful but love to play pranks on humans who refuse to see them....julie

These are soooo cute!! I can't wait to see them finished. They look like each one has it's own personality. Very fun! :o)

Sue said...

Pillywiggins...I'll have to google that!

Thank you all for your comments, it is
great to get positive affirmation on
a new project!

I LOVE them! I need to get back to the clay. I love that each little face "has a different concern".
