back to dolls

Having to cancel my plans to attend ODACA Day in Atlanta this summer made it even more important that I send a helper donation for the event.
I'm working on this little jack-in-the-box-to-be ... as my donation. His box is made of papier mache with a painted design echoing the fabric I'll use for his costume. That piece of felt perched on his head will become a bicorne hat ... Napoleon style. The head and hands are polymer clay for the artist's instant gratification ... paper clay is still my favorite, but for this project it would just take too long! I'm still going to be dividing my studio time between dolls and my new-found love paper arts / collage. Life is full ... check back to see this project finished ...
