I used an empty 250ml plastic Colgate mouthwash bottle for the body. As it's plastic I covered it in masking tape first, gave that a coat of bronze powertex and then wrapped it in powertexed t-shirt fabric.
Next I started on the skirt using pieces of t-shirt fabric.
I used paper decoration for the top half of the body and also used a piece of thick cotton lace to give her a scarf. Then I set about making her a hat.
Next I need to sort her face out.
And a view from the back.
So I powertexed her face white, gave her a bit of face paint and some hair. Coloured the fabrics with a variety of blues until I was happy with the colour combo.
