Sometimes it's fun to do something just for the fun of it! My Red Hat Egg Lady is from an online class with Kathryn Walmsley and she really isn't an egg. She's an egg-shaped gourd the size of an extra large chicken egg. Her face is sculpted in paper clay and her hair is apoxie sculpt, as are her legs. She was too shy to lift her skirt for the photo, but she's wearing a beaded bikini under her tutu with beaded fringe you can just see peeking out under there.
She's pretty smug about her risque outfit..........
Okay, I discovered how to do this! Here are photos of my Victorian Rabbit from an online class with Sherry Goshon. She's made of doe suede and stands alone without the aid of an armature. Her blouse is made from an antique petticoat I've had in my stash for a long time waiting for just the right project on which to use it. Her apron is from a linen hand towel I've had for awhile, as well.
Isn't that a sweet gentle face? It's a face mold created by Sherry which I covered with doe suede and painted with watercolor pencils and blushed and highlighted with decorator chalks. Such fun!!! I have white velvet to make another rabbit, but who knows when I'll find the time to do that!
