Not much to show

Well life does seem to get in the way all of a suddenly. So I haven't done much to the doll. Last night I started on the wings. I dyed the wings but didn't get the results I wanted instead it has all gone rather muddy green. Anyway I am not one to throw away things so I will make best use of it. I ran some glitzy embroidary thread through the material and I did some beading on it. But there is still something missing I feel. I don't know yet what it is. It needs a bit of a pickup and how am I going to do this? I think perhaps the simplest thing would be to sprinkle some glitter. However I still thing it needs something else. The wings are made out of mulberrry bark so I have to handle it a bit carefully. I did strengthen it by dipping it in diluted glue but I still feel it won't stand any rough handling. While I was writing this a thought occurred to me. I will try it out and then let you all see.
Keep tuned in.


  1. I like the wings as they are, Shashi. But if you want something else on them, how about gluing some sparkly holeless beads on them?

  2. Can't wait to see what you come up with! I know the feeling when something just isn't 'quite right'. I think they look nice though.

  3. c'est du travail d'artiste ..bravo Shashi !!!
