Sister - an art doll from midsummer
And she is complete! I must admit that I am very happy with how she came out.
The costume was a great challenge for my fingers - it is hand sewed from more than 50 separate pieces. then her shoes - another crazy idea - how to make it look like a shiny leather without using leather. And a little rat - a best friend following her in her journeys. I have never sculpted anything this small and detailed. The little thing is 3 cm tall, it is sculpted from air dray clay over wire armature and flocked with natural mohair. It has even tiny whiskers made from my dog's hair.
