This is the blank after china painting, firing, and assembling with pipe cleaners and then wrapping with cotton to form the body.
This step was putting on the pantalets to start the first step of dressing the doll which was the first week of the workshop.
This is the picture of the doll with the underslip and overskirt attached. The camisole is part the slip.
Here the doll now her camisole, underclothes and is ready for her silk dress to be sewn.
Her silk dress is now on and she is ready to be jeweled and then wigged and crowned.
This is the dress in process
This is my finished Mystral fairy completed. Her wings were purchased 20 years ago and were waiting for just the right fairy. They are made fine wire and jewels and crystals at the tips.
It is hard to see in the picture but she has jewels on her arms and on a crown on her head. They are hand sewn on her necklace and crown.
