Process

  1. Plan your design on your “Flight” body by using a pencil or Sharpie marker to draw the outfit and details. 
  2. Use pliers to mold the hair and dress shape 
  3. Use the paints to paint the skin, hair, outfit, and accessories onto your “Flight”
  4. Details and patterning can be added once the solid layers of paint are dry. Stickers, scrapbooking materials, nail polish, sparkles, and fabric paint are fun ways to add special touches.
  5. Once you are finished with your flights body, hair, and outfit, it is time to add the charms! Use charms, wire, beads, and any other materials you have collected. 
  6. Be sure to sign your masterpiece! 

Fun ways to make your “Flight” unique:

  •  Use scrapbooking materials and stickers to decorate your Flight’s outfit.
  • Include fabric and trim details
  • Create a special hanger with wire and beads.
  • Use glitter or glitter fabric paint to add sparkly touches
  • Sharpie markers + paint pens are helpful to add designs onto the outfit.
  • Use paper, fabric, or felt to make shoes and a belt for your “Flight”
  • Add beads and wire to the hair for a fancy style

  

Once you create your own original “Flight,” please send me a picture of your piece to be posted on our website by e-mailing info@karenrossi.com!
