Nativity Creche

Before Christmas I was invited to make and display a Nativity Creche at an exhibition in our nearby City. Brian helped me to make the shape from wood and I embossed and painted copper shim and then cut into shapes and machine embroidered these onto felt covered with organza.
The Icons on the back inside walls were printed onto tissue paper and then laid over gold card. The Rose window was printed on to acetate. The figures were made using wire frames and then covered in Paverpol soaked fabric, the faces were Model Magic in moulds. I was very pleased with the end result and hope you like it too!
