Not Alice contd...

Struggling to stay indoors during this sunny spell,
but Alicia needs a head lol.
 Sculptured fabric and white gesso...
 soft layering with acrylic pant....
 line work with pencil...
 detailing with more vibrant acrylics
(Alicia is as strong a young lady as Alice)
 Though she was having "hair issues" this morning lol
 A tip from their mutual friend soon sorted the problem :D

Just a few finishing touches(and a story to write)
and she'll be ready to go to her new home.
Enjoy XXX

  4. "Sculptured" lol...as in you make the basic head shape then use stitches to pull the features into shape...corners of the eyes/mouth and nostrils, before sealing in place with gesso/paint/glue XXX

    1. I just paint it, and when totally dry I spray with Fixative or in this case Satin varnish.
