Anothr Marie Antoinette Bust - so to speak!

 More mixed media.  Trying out dying wool roving pink!  So easy with food colouring and utube!

Great fun doing the hair, which is probably a tad unembellished,


  but I let the dress speak instead! 

Moody Blue!

I LOVE her - especially her expression. You do such wonderful faces. It looks like you cut the sheer fabric with a heat knife or candle?

I also like your catapillar. Is his hooka a spark plug? Keep working on the face - I would love to see this a pattern!

Thank you Arley! A candle was used for the fabric. I like parts of this Caterpiller, but not the face. The hooka is a hose connector coated with gesso and a top coat of metallic paint used for ceramics, to give it a bronzed look. The brass lid is the top off a laser pencil torch - all held together through the middle with the ink tube of a biro, with the nib peirced through the blue wooden bead on top and anchored at the base with hot glue on a fluted button! The whole thing is then stitched through the mushroom, which is held together by and umberella type armature, so it is anchored well. I made the hose from thin coated wire, drilled into the base of the plastic hose connector, with a long wooden bead handle! However, I have since made another caterpiller, hooka and mushroom - all different! LOL!
