Every year I say I'm going to make the Three Kings for the holidays, since I spent so many in Puerto Rico, where January 6th (3 King's Day) is celebrated. So this year, since I'll be doing my "really big show" at the Adams State College Luther Bean Museum, I was inspired to finally get it done....and I did! I have to say I really enjoyed this one...from the different faces, & needle felting the hair, to the costumes, and finding little pieces to make into their gifts. I used things like the top of a mascara wand, fancy buttons, a plastic bottle covered in candy wrapper (I of course had to eat the candy...the things we do for our art!) My wonderful friend Jane even gave me some pieces of frankincense to include I had so much fun I wound up making to sets of 3 Kings, which confused Hubby at first when he saw 6. One set is just a bit larger than the other, and done featuring the color blue in their costumes.
