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.

Hot Hot Hot!

It seems that summer took it seriously and after some refreshing rainy days it's hitting with all its force.
The thermometer is showing +40 Celsius and +30 in my studio is supposed to feel refreshing.
The good side of this enormous heat is that it is perfect for sculpting. The clay is drying fast and that makes it easier to work. So let's put the wet T-shirt on and get that clay :)
Hopefully the temperature will fall soon, as sweating hands is not what I want for sewing and embroidering.
