Oh boy, there was a mixed reaction, as most people assume art dolls are supposed to be pretty, but i wanted the group to be challenged, but was worried about their reaction. I should have known better, there was a mixed reaction at first, but now the ball is rolling. they have not let me down. pop over to MAD MAMMA to have a look at the great pieces so far. http://www.flickr.com/groups/964970@N23/
Here is mine. Now i really WAS worried about putting this in the swap, especially as my hubby said i had gone a bit tooooo wild with this one. So i put it in the photo-stream, but was more than prepared to remove it, if it wasn't well received.
Believe it or not, I've come to looove this doll, ugly as it is.
So i suppose you want to have a peep at her........
here she is in all her glory.....lol.
To make the doll, i flattened an empty lager can...lol. well in fact I practically annihilated it with a big hammer. Oh boy that was fun, and a great way to get rid of frustrations. roflol.
Then i painted it all over with white acrylic glue, after finding it much to difficult to erase the wording on the can.
Then i painted the face with flesh coloured acrylic paint, and coloured the body with alcohol inks.
The Wings, arms legs and hat are all collaged onto card, and the hands and feet are brads, that i managed to find just last week.
