This pixie's body, arms and legs are made from acrylic yarn on a pom-pom maker and pipe cleaners. The hands and feet are modelled from Silk Clay which is also used for covering a small polystyrene ball for the head. Beads are threaded onto pipe cleaner legs and all limbs are bent, enabling the pixie to sit. This pixie is holding a pipe cleaner heart in his hands.
