Meet Marcelle.

I finished her, actually the sealer went on this morning.  Our Mini-Monthly Challenge on the ADO (art dolls only) team was a Masque theme...and as I happened to already have her 5/8th of the way finished, and knew I wanted a sort of twenties, flapper-girl follies kind of face, she decided she'd cooperate and dress for the challenge.  Nice of her, wasn't it?  I get the feeling she's not always so cooperative.

She started with a child's building block, an old wooden spoon, and a couple of clothespins.  The bottom stick of the spoon became her arms.  Paperclay did the rest.  I love paperclay.  Have I mentioned I love paperclay?




I think the mask suits her.
