Meet Goth Moth!

Another button fairy! This one is the sister to 'Yellow Wings' - see below. Her wings are made from card with some stuck on machine knitting (a scrap from my Mum!). Her face has been moulded from air dried clay then painted and inked. She wasn't going to be a 'goth' originally, but I sprayed on the gloss finish a little too early and all her make up smudged - doh! Don't you just hate it when that happens. So a goth she is, still I'm sure until they both fly to their new homes, 'Yellow Wings' will keep her in order - lol.

Lovely. What kind of ink did you use to paint her face?

Thanks so much for your comments.

Margarita - I first use a tan coloured acrylic paint for the skin and white acrylic paint for the eyes then a combination of Sharpie pens (for the black outline) and Sakura Glaze pens for the eyes and lips. I then rub some pastel coloured chalk over for highlighting the cheeks and forehead. Finally a little bit of Ranger's Stickles for a little glint of mischief in the eyes! I do sometimes use other pens - just whatever is on hand really, but all the eyes need is just a few dabs of colour as the area is so small. Hope this helps.
