The Making of a Snow Queen

Snow Queen Wood

Three days of Queens

Remember that amazing heavy snow we had back in 2017? I lived in a fairly remote pace (albeit very close to the A44) and was stuck in this beautiful winter wonderland for days. It was eerily quiet and I loved every strange, silent moment. I also decided to make a snow woman …

The red snow queen

DAY ONE – THE RED QUEEN

I can’t remember the last time I made anything at all out of snow. If there are techniques I should be using I’m unaware. The Red Queen emerged with a long cloak thing and a red crown.

The White Snow Queen

DAY TWO – THE WHITE QUEEN
The next day the snow was still around. It was harder and I could shape the new queen into a person-shaped blob as opposed to a blob shaped blob. Her face was clearer. I was enjoying this. I dug out more long drapes and a large jewel for her breast. The boa was surplus to requirements really.

The black queen of snow

DAY THREE – THE BLACK QUEEN
I was surprised the snow was still around, but now determined to chisel out her features more clearly. Armed with a kitchen knife, I attended to her shape and her face. Then the dressing. She’s a beauty  – although her neck was getting a little fragile by now.
Job done.
Thank you snow.
