Ivory Sculpture, with Hair!!

This is the basics of the sculpture with ivory powertex. I decided to try and add some hair to this one.

Once dry, I moved onto the next layers of colours. The lace bodice and hat are ivory with a hint of bronze and the shawl and strip round the hat is bronze with a hint of ivory for some contrast.

This is from the back. I love how the hair came out.

And finally I added some treasure gold, I used oxynite and then renaissance to enhance the textures.

And from the back where I think you can see more of the treasure gold.

Hopefully the sun'll be out again tomorrow so I'll get some out in the garden shots.

And she's not going to my sisters now either.

She's charming... how funny - my first thought was Dickensian too - but then I started to get Eliza Doolittle... how our imaginations tell stories! Hope you're enjoying a lovely Christmas.

Love her, Sam, and I am sure your sister will too. Need to hunt out some heads so I can have a go!
