NIAMH is a beautiful 22" Rubinesque fairy who lives somewhere in the forest near the Dead Sea. She has been sighted in mud baths when nobody is supposedly looking. During the heat of the day, she sleeps lazily among the date palms and lush green oasis of the fertile desert. She's getting kind of lonely and would like you to get creative and make some more fairies for her to spend her days with!

This is a highly detailed instructional E-book in PDF format that reads like an online course. It has OVER 150 PAGES with tons of step-by-step photos and detailed instructions, illustrations, and photos. If you've got the creative bug but feeling a little nervous, don't be. This course is the product and culmination of at least a hundred and fifty hours of creating, photographing, writing, and editing. It was done with you in mind!

NIAMH is not too difficult for beginners, but not too easy for experienced doll makers, either. This pattern is a great step-by-step "book" that's sure to inspire. This is an intermediate to advanced doll making course with a focus on sculpture.

The pattern focuses on these exciting techniques:
1)"Skins"- Adding an outer glove-like layer to modify a doll's body and truly sculpt it as you wish
2) Cloth - Over- Clay: Sculpting a face with air-dry clay, and covering it with fabric
3) Building a proper wire armature- Adding strength, form and flexibility to your doll for any type of pose you wish
4) Fairy Wings: There are two different types of wings to try!
5) FME- Free Motion Embroidery
6) Shading the face

The pattern has an anatomically proportional figure with “skins.”
The doll’s wings are made from Translucent Liquid Sculpey and organza shirred by hand.
The face uses the cloth-over-clay method and has glass eyes.

The face is colored and detailed with glittery Pearl-Ex powder and pigment paint. Give your doll some extra sparkle and pizzazz!
The shoes are made with free motion embroidery.

This pattern is loaded with techniques and fun. I will be available to help you along the way and answer questions. Just convo me and I will be happy to help you in any way I can.

If you would like to use this pattern as a group challenge, you may purchase one pattern and distribute it to the group. All I ask is for pictures and a write up, for display on my website or on social media.

* This pattern is intended for the purchaser only, and not to be shared (except in doll groups, as above). Thank you for understanding!
* You may publish photos of the doll on your blog/website, but please be kind and tell people where you found the pattern
* Make as many dolls as you like
* Selling dolls is permitted
* Commercial mass production is a big giant no-no

I just went over the pattern and it is very detailed. I've looked at this pattern for a long time and have visited her blog. I've admired her work and dolls and decided to give this one a try. It's different from what I do as a doll maker so I am excited to be learning some new techniques. I've been working on this doll. I would like to add one thing. This pattern is, in my opinion, not for beginners in doll making. This pattern is more geared towards experienced doll makers.
