First

Together, Linda and Margaret partner their artistic talents to make life sized Santa’s for commercial decor. To create the Santa’s, Linda hand sculptures the head and hands in clay, and then molds and cast in a lifelike silicone rubber. Glass eyes are inserted and wool fleece is hand felted directly into the silicone. A skeleton of PVC pipe was assembled and covered with pillows and foam. All this is then covered with fabric to create the body. The costume is sewn by the artist, and either faux fur or recycled fur is used for trim. Linda and Margaret make every effort to create a realistic lifelike character.
