Santa's Back!

It's been a while since I posted a new Santa. I finished this one last week.

He's a traditional style Santa. He holds a "bottle brush" tree in his right hand that has been decorated with red balls and sparkly "snow".

His "mug shot" above. His eyes are rather hooded, he looks a tiny bit intense, I think.

I sculpted him from paper mache (what else?) over a clean coffee creamer bottle, with a tiny bit of modeling paste to smooth out his face. He is painted mostly in Barn Red, Wicker White, and Missippi Mud acrylic paints. I crackled the red and brown areas. The red areas were then antiqued with thinned white paint that was rubbed right off, and the remaining areas were antiqued with a brown stain.

He will be appearing in my Etsy store soon.

I am working on a few more Santas that I'll be posting soon.

Thank you for stopping by, and as always, I love to hear from you, so please leave a comment to let me know you were here.

Hi Miss Maggy,

It's me, Prudence. Mom is working upstairs on a project so I get to use the "puter".

Oh, I love your new Santa. Of course he has that "intense" look, he has a lot of work to do and thinking about that naughty or nice list, making sure the elves are working, takin' care of the Reindeer, maybe even shoveling snow. Giggle.

Heaps of Hugs ♥

Love this Santa Maggie. I'm nuts about all of your Santa figures but this one really speaks to me. It's saying,"Maddy, take me home."
Can't wait to see what you finish next. Hugs

Maggie, I think he is so precious! Maybe he looks intense because he knows Christmas is coming, and he is thinking ahead of all the toys to make ;o) Have a great day
