Masked Marauders

They are out to steal your presents (and your heart!)

These little burglars are easy to make! They are hybrids, I used two different push molds that I made from two different dolls. First I used the body/torso mold and then a separate face mold so that the face will be out of proportion with the body. There are made with paper clay, first dust your push mold with corn starch or flour, I use a fluffy paint brush for this. After your separate pieces have dried attach the head to the torso with more paper clay. when dry, cover with tissue paper and glue of your choice, I use perfect paper adhesive. I gesso’d the faces and painted them with acrylic paint. The fabric wings were purchased at Michaels craft store and adhered to the bodies with e 6000. the wire is left intact so they can be tied to a christmas tree limb and they look very pretty!
