I've played with paper clay and always drool over dolls with paper clay heads. I'm not much of a sculptor, but I like to squish clay as much as the next person. I played around with clay and made this head. I had many ideas for her, but when I started she choose her own identity.
My first ever paper clay prim creation! She has a mohair wig with a bit of vintage jewelry adornment. Her clothes are fully removable as well. Lots of lace, ruffs, and a few pearls.
She has a sheer white bustle over her lavender damask dress. Under the white panel on the back of her bodice are hook and eye closures.
Madam has a wired petticoat to give her skirt the right amount of fluff. I used wired ribbon gathered and it worked out wonderfully! Under the underskirt are her little sheer bloomers. If you'd like to see them head on over to flickr! I'm trying to not clog up with tons of pics, but I adore details.
Overall she was a success. Will I do this again? Who knows, but it made me happy while I did it this time so that is all that counts!
