During our day we will use several different mediums to create a Santos unique to only you. We will strip away the religious aspects of the Santos and put a personal and modern twist on it. This Santos will stand over 30 inches tall. We paint the wood frame that I will build for you. We start our day sculpting the head, painting and attaching the head and arms to the body. In the afternoon we will create a covering (clothes) and add personal accessories to your sculpture.

  • 2 yards of fabric plus some remnants to dress your Santos, I use muted fabrics such as muslin, canvas, linens, cotton, cheesecloth, old silk in creams and off whites. Torn and worn linens work great. I would bring one or two pieces that are at least 1 yard and then remnants to rip and layer with. Bring thread and needles of different sizes, old laces, fabric doilies or table runners, buttons, string, and any trinkets that you have been saving. Milagros, rosary beads or an old cross will add authenticity to your Santos.

  • If you are driving it would be nice to have a sewing machine, extension cord and power strip to share. (thanks).
