"Snow Angel" has a Waist-Coat Jacket!

He finally has a mouth 
and some low profile eye-lids!
I finished his boots and made a pair
of warm winter mittens using paper clay.
His little wool jacket was constructed 
using an old, recycled off-white wool blanket 
that Katie and I found at a resale shop in Ephrata, PA. 
 It is hand "dyed" with azure blue
 acrylic paint, diluted in tap water.
I allow the wool to air-dry for two hours
and then brushed on the stripes and collar accents
with some undiluted azure blue. 
His entire body and his boots have a coat of gesso 
and are ready for painting!
(I'm thinking RED boots!)
