Kewpie in Jar Fairyland!

Hello All,
Meet Kewpie of Jar Fairyland! I have been going above and beyond the jar fairy world, creating fairy and doll vignettes in any glass piece I can find, even in lanterns, candy containers, shadow boxes, vases, bulbs, bulb carriages, tea cups, canning jars, and more!

Here is an upclose picture of my latest jar fairy called: "Doll House Mania" inspired by Kewpie Dolls, Dolly Dingle and Vintage Fairytales.

I made this piece from an old jar, with smooth glass for bettering viewing of inside scene.
I hand sculpted the kewpie doll head, then handpainted it.

I used a variety of hand glittered stars, turned into flowers, crepe paper, vintage millinery/wire flower garland.

For the inside dolls hat/crown, I used several tiny vintage pearl bead floral strands, from Tinsel Trading.

I've been making loads of glass vignettes filled with all types of enchanting specimens, in my new book: Altered Art Circus, Quarry Books, Feb.2009, I have a few glass vignette projects for readers to get inspired by, learn and create. SHHHH keeping the project name a secret until Feb.1, 2009...Then I will blog all about it!
