Coral-Crowned Articulated Paintbrush Doll

This lady is absolutely one of my new all-time favorites from 
Retro Cafe Art Gallery
that is featured in the new Nov/Dec Somerset Studio magazine.

 that has been painted and stamped,
with a paper clay head surrounded by twisted red wire curls.

Most of the items are available at Retro Cafe Art Gallery 
online store and I'll highlight the links as I go. The new
colors of Metalliques are just out.

I base coated the body of the doll and added stamped images 

Then I highlighted certain areas of the piece with Metallique Paints
from Finnabair's newest line.

older colors I used are Steampunk Copper and Brass Hardware

I painted the brush part with Coral Reef and the

The Brass Angel Bust fit perfect on the torso. 

The Wings are painted with the Metalliques Paints in
a sporadic pattern.

A colored Rhinestone becomes her necklace.

The Paper Clay Art Doll Mould has 26 gauge red wire used for hair, and the 
Coral Chipboard Cut Out creates a crown. 

A few Black Micro Beads are used as filler on the brush that are added with
Soft Gloss Gel, and the Baroque Gold Dresden is wrapped around the top
of the brush. (silver is shown on the link)

Add the brads and she is ready to hang up on the wall. That's what's so
cool about these Dolls, they already have a hole in the top
of the brush that lets you easily hang them anywhere.

The magazine will be on the newstands Nov.1st. The Totem Pole doll post is found here.

That's it for me. Hope you're inspired to play.

See you back here soon.
