Here is another of my many bearded men(usually with a Christmas theme, however, I have made over 70 old fellows and old ladies, fishermen, gardeners, angels, clowns and many more. They are one of a kind handsculpted wood and wire amature. The beard and hair is tibetan goat hair. I use vintage fabrics whenever possible with old buttons and toys. If I can't find what I'm looking for I distress new to look old. Hoping to start a fellow this month. I have been buys making my sodered jewelry, will post them soon.
Here is one of my bearded projects, he is made of wood and wire armature, handscultped face and tibetan wool beard and hair. He is dressed with a vintage handsewn wool underdress and a wool childs sweater made into his hooded jacket. His boots are felted painted wool and accessories are mostly handmade and distressed to look old. I have made over 70 of my bearded friends, garderners, fishermen, professor, boy, clowns and many more. I have also made little old ladies, my time only allows me to make them with a winter(christmas) theme, since I need to feed my creativity with other projects. Hoping to start one this month.
