I’ve spent the last couple weeks making this art doll. She started with a wire armature wrapped with masking tape, papier-mâché was added for bulk, and Creative Paper Clay was used to sculpt her final shape. I knitted her shawl from sparkly yarn I had spun from roving on a drop-spindle years ago, and her gown was sewn from some stash fabric. I wanted to add sparkle so a rhinestone holds her shawl together and Czech glass seed beads were sewn to her skirt. She has a whole body underneath (photo below), even a sexy leg-slit down the back. I think she’s more matronly but she thinks otherwise.
