Mustard Hand Sculpted, Hand Made Primitive, Vintage Style Belsnickel Santa

  • $145.00

I'd like to introduce to you, one of my newest sculpts, this 7.5 inch Mustard Belsnickel Santa..... He was meticulously hand sculpted using my own mixes of super sculpey clays, and then hand painted with attention and detail for that time
worn look. I've hand made a sisal bottle brush tree and stained in a coffee apple stain for a gorgeous color to match. Santa's colors are of an English Mustard, Yellow Ochre and a Burnt Umber brushed finish. Many, many layers of paint, including his hand painted eyes. Everything is hand sculpted, and hand painted, even his little birdhouse he carries in one hand.

Embellishments include a brown shaggy trim added to his hat and down his coat, and around the bottom, as well as a light coat of real glass glitter on the creamy white base.

His beard is made using 100% real sheep's wool, very carefully adhered into place, tiny strand by strand.... Then lightly "brushed" out for a nice full beard and mustache....

He is constructed over a very strong armature, and has a solid base with both sculpey clays used, and then re-coated in a paper clay to get that mottled snow like appearance....

Many many details, and a lot of time and love has gone into this piece I am offering up for your consideration today.

Thank you for visiting.....
