Update on pixie

I just got my pixie to stand up. He is in a better mood now.Kai asked me how I made his wings. It is no trade secrete I think many dollmakers have used this method. Simple just cut 4 pieces of iron on interfacing to the desired shape. Sandwich the wire between 2 interfacing making sure that the sticky sides face each other and iron. The 2 interfacing stick together with the wire sandwiched inbetween so that it does not flop. Then paint and embellish to your hearts content. I used interfacing for sheer fabrics. I will post the pictures of the pixie tomorrow when I hope to finish him.

  1. Thank you SO MUCH, Shashi! I always wondered how wings were made! The ones for your Pixie are really pretty, and I looked & looked at them, trying to figure out what you did! Now, you KNOW I will have to go try it! LOL! I genuinely appreciate the tutorial! You're a sweetheart!
