St. Tarcisius, Virgin Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus Saint peg dolls
I obviously did not get all my "projects" done before Christmas this year ;) One thing I finally caught up on this week was the Holy Family Peg doll set I promised the kids. Knox has been begging to paint his own peg doll for a long time. The package that baby Jesus came in had 4 pegs (from Hobby Lobby), so I let each kid have one peg to paint.
I just figured out how to do real eyes. I had a commenter say to use the tip of your paint brush but mine aren't flat ;( so I made football ovals! lol It wasn't perfect but they turned out great I think!
The Holy Family Saint peg dolls. Reni has Joseph in a yellow cloak- that's the picture I went off of. He may get another nose job...we'll see.
Knox and Genna's pegs looked like the adult pegs but smaller, and Brenden chose the other baby to make his own baby Jesus. Knox was brainstorming what child saint to paint and came up with St. Tarcisius and Genna wanted to make my Virgin Mary.
Knox's peg saint is his own original design, with no help from me on colors or shapes or painting! He chose the red for martyrdom. He looked at a holy card online and that was it. St. Tarcisius is a patron Saint of First Communicants by the way ;)
I am really really proud of him! I think it looks fantastic! He originally didn't care for his hands he had painted- they were too large, and he went back and corrected it all himself without advice!
Beams of light from the Eucharist! Brilliant painting!
I was so very surprised at Genna's ability to trace the lines with the blue Painter's pen. She did so well! The Virgin Mary looks great! When Genna puts her mind to something she does it! Just like the other day when she made her own little chalice and paten for her mass kit from Sculpey.
Painting on her hair!
Speaking of hair...Genna your hair looks wild today ;) Oh that's right you kept running off every time I tried to fix it! Now hopefully we'll get a warmer day so I can go spray these pegs and then we can play with them!
