Item details

Step into Elf World and meet the Podkins, a newly designed Team of Elves from the Elf~World studio. They are friendly little characters, ready for any mission, especially if it involves creeping around, rummaging in the leaf-mould and getting dirty in the process. Podkins are positively crackling with enchantment!

Here is a comprehensive tutorial of this original design, directly from the Artist. The kit includes a four page laminated booklet with full photographic instructions, a natural seed-pod which forms the body of the elf, two black onyx bead eyes and a lock of mohair doll hair. It does not include the polymer clay as you will need to choose your own colours. You will need three colours plus flesh colour, no more than 28g of each. You will also need basic sculpting tools - knitting needles and an old pen case will be suitable, and to finish off a dab of glue, pva is good, to attach the hair.

Please note: this original and exclusive design is for personal use, it may not be duplicated. Podkins may not be produced for resale. All rights reserved.
