One of the most popuar and acclaimed Santas is the one who wears a long red or blue gown in flowers. That is how he(Santa) appeared in the first Russian folktales. With the time the variety of the clothes and how Santa was introduced individually grew up tremendously. Now you can find practically any color or coloration used to depict and paint the gown of Santa Claus. There are artists who use acrylic, others - water color. There are decorators, (very few indeed) who masterfully apply semi precious stones into the wood structure of the body of Russian Ded Moroz. Those pieces are rare and more valuable, because they require much more time to be made.
