I wanted to share my two newest dolls. I finally got around to making a Spirit elemental doll, and then Pan came about through a chat with my friend. She basically challenged me to make him, so of course I had to accept! Cheesy
Akasha, my elemental doll of Spirit. Her hair is a deep purple, my camera just can't pick that up for some reason.
Pan! He took forever to do because of the fun fur, but I think he's worth it Smiley

They look really well made. Pan's hairy bits look excellent.

All of your elementals are gorgeous. But I am in love with your Pan.

So cute! I keep trying to work with Fun-Fur, and I keep failing miserably in spite of tutorials. Your Pan looks fantastic, I'm especially in love with his hair! And I love that you thought to do a Spirit elemental as well.

As for capturing true colors, try adjusting your camera's white balance and exposure settings, if it has them. Smiley

I absolutely ADORE the Pan! Did you use a pattern? I would like to try to make one for myself. I think I might try using regular yarn for the legs and then weaving fun fur into it afterwards.

I struggled with fun fur for a while too. All it takes is some practice, I'm sure you can do it! I'll have to play around with my camera and see if I can figure out the settings on it, thanks for the advice Smiley

Thanks Smiley He is completely original. I used regular yarn to make his legs, then went back over it with the fun fur. I did his hair the same way.

Both are really cute but Pan is my fav. I know how hard it is to use fun fur. You did a fantastic job.

Oh wow, that Pan is stunning.  Definitely worth the trouble of working with Fun Fur!
