Hello welcome to my very first blog.
My name is Michelle Fenton. I have been making little fairy door's now for about 7 years all up. I started to make them first in wood and use to carefully hand paint them, sand them paint them then glaze them and sell them on E-bay. They were very really sweet but took a lot of effort from start to finish.
For many years this was great. Every one needs a little fairy door for the fairies to live in. I love creating little fairy doors. I did fall in love with these cuties but the problem was they were so time consuming and to do my best to keep them all the same was not easy to do. I had a few different styles to choose from. This was the rose cottage style. I could not tell you how many I sold all up but it was a lot. They were a lot larger than most little "fae" doors and very heavy to post. Same with this cute little mushroom cottage. This one was a good seller as well. It is all a learning curve really. We all must start somewhere hey.
Today I have discovered a new way of creating fairy door's. My new love product is "Polymer Clay" Love it.
It is the best stuff in my opinion since sliced bread. I love the feel of creating something special that is 3D and tangible. I love the fact that I can create so many different textures with this versatile product. Every time I have a new Polymer clay box opened it's a wonderful moment to use my imagination to create something completely new.
Although I loved making the wooden doors like the two which are pictured here. I really love the polymer clay doors as they look so realistic and very different to most I have seen on the net. I can create them to look like real faux bark, tree stump, wood, stones, brick etc.
I love the fact that they are unique and so different to the next one. I will be doing my best to show people how to make different things. You will be able to purchase something completely new and a true OOAK
(one of a kind) fairy door or home.
I don't have the same problem any more to try and match everything. As I now love to make unique doors. Each one is completely different from the other. The more detail the better for me. A lot of little creations are around the same size give or take a few cm's here and there. I love adding mushrooms, bugs and the best invention ever glitter. Fairies just love glitz and glam.
Some of my fairy door's are very detailed and turn into a real labour of love. Sometimes I don't know when to stop. This one I made as a gift for a friend for Christmas last year. This little fairy has a home garden door. I admit I can get carried away sometimes. I finished it off in a little wooden frame. I must say it is one of my favourites.
What ever little fairy door you like they are all full of personality.
