I decided to give this craft a go... The hardest part was deciding which look to create, and the research of each saint including what they did and what they all look like! I managed to put together a nice booklet of all I found. Here are the saints I picked from A to Z.
Wee Saints Batch 1: A-F
I decided to use the wooden people I found at Crafts Direct store in a variety of sizes (Girls, boys, children). They don't take up much room, as the felt ones may. Even though I bought acrylic paints, I decided to use my water color and oil based pencils. This gave me room for more intricate details, where painting with a brush can be challenging. And I was able to beautifully blend colors best with the oil pencils (which are made for drawing on wood.) My kids, husband and I just love how they turned out.
