Troll

***Trolls***

In Norwegian fairy-tales, trolls do have a special place. They live in forest and mountains. Some are giants and some small. They have long crooked noses, large ears and most of them have long bushy tails. They have only four fingers and four toes on each limb. There are also stories about two or three headed trolls. Some are evil, some good, and others even brings good luck.
The ones I make are all happy, kindhearted and friendly trolls. ;-)
I make the head, hands and feet out of cernit clay. Cernit is a modelling clay with porcelain finish. It is soft and easy to work with. Cernit is also a popular clay among dollmakers.
I knit and sew the clothes.
I also use wooden roots with many of my trolls.

These trolls are large ones, measures approx. 35-40 cm
