A Lost Soul searching for Spring. Babe Girl

 Oh, and her bees are made from Half .Cilla.  A very cool air dry clay....its smooth and light and gives great detail...works so easily in a mold,,,, .its so weightless for accessories...it's my new favorite "stuff"
This little doll has a paperclay bodice head and lower arms and legs...her bodysuit has a wire armature holding the clay parts in place.  She is soft and feels like a "doll" in your hands" !
 
Her clothes are mostly vintage fabrics that I have collected but her skirt is a very cool tulle with metal threads ...It has a pretty cool VINTAGY German silver look to it.  When I cut it.  It was a little uneven  so I burned the edges a bit. That didn't look as good as I imagined and the skirt was Already on the doll...ughhhhhh. Then I pinched it kind of like pissed...and Holee. It just rolled up and stAyed...I guess because of the metL threads,,,VERRY cool and now I love the effect.  Well I got the fabric from Mood Fabrics in NYC.  ..1 yard....$50.  I knew I needed this fabric...and I can probably make 10 or more skirts. So it was worth it!!!!
