Pingo’s first pair of skates

Pingo (little devil in Spanish) was my 2005 snowflake—the first year I participated in Robert’s Snow fundraising.
Here is a sequence of the making of the piece.

First I built the armature with wire.

Here is my snowflake ready to be painted.

I built the basic shapes of my little devil over the armature

Pingo was made from colored Sculpey and I did almost not painting at all over the figure.

I sewed the little underwear from a knitted shirt, and the blades for the skates I shaped from the thinnest wire.

Robert’s Snow: For Cancer’s Cure starts today at 9:00am. My 2007 snowflake, Little Night: See Me Shine, a music box, will be now available for bidding and until the November 23.

So, go see and fall in love with the snowflakes!
