Evelyn, a Primitive Polka Dot Valentine’s Angel

EvelynBrownBG This sweet little angel is Evelyn. She is my original design and is guaranteed one of a kind, original art! I’ve used no patterns or molds to create her or her clothing. Evelyn is 16" tall & has a 9" wingspan. She has been made of muslin and stuffed with fiberfill. Her bottom has been rag-stuffed & bean filled in order to allow her to stand freely. Evelyn’s head and torso have been made from hand-sculpted paper clay. I have hand-painted & sanded Evelyn top to bottom many, many times. She has been stained top to bottom for a truly grungy appearance. Evelyn’s arms are lightly wired and button jointed allowing her to be gently posed.

Evelyn’s facial features have been hand-painted. She has big brown eyes, pink lips & the rosiest cheeks. Evelyn’s fingers have been needle-sculpted. She has been painted with premium acrylic paints and has been sealed with glossy acrylic sealer so that she may be lightly dusted over the years & kept a lifetime.

EvelynEtherealEvelyn’s skirt features lots of hand-stitching. Her skirt consists of a white underskirt made of lawn cotton which is slightly sheer. Her over skirt has been made from white tulle which makes her appear truly angelic! Her underskirt is split in front to allow view of her base which consists of hand-painted polka dots & looks like another part of her skirt! The skirt band is dotted with authentic swarovski crystals which have been sewn securely in place. Evelyn’s clothes have been treated to a coffee and lavender bud bath for an aged appearance. They were then hand-washed & pressed with linen water.

Evelyn’s wings are something special. They have been made from vintage text from a book titled Diary of a Birthday Doll decoupaged over sturdy cardstock. They have been coated with several layers of sealant & were then generously dusted with vintage-style glass glitter. They sparkle beautifully. Evelyn’s wings have been attached securely with a vintage shell button (the colorful white side is exposed, the darker shell side is facing Evelyn’s body).

Evelyn carries a Valentine’s banner that reads "My True". Each letter was hand-stamped onto taupe cardstock with chocolate ink then strung on hemp twine. The banner is simply tied to Evelyn’s arms should you want to remove it.
Evelyn’s hair is black 100% mohair. It has been lightly glued then carefully needle felted to her head. Evelyn’s hair is styled into low buns.
