29 Faces – Face 21

Well, it’s the 29th day of March, and I’m only at Face 21.  Doesn’t look like I’m going to make it – oh well.  Face 21 took me what seemed like hours – there are so many layers of paint on this face, and I have no idea where they went, she still looks pretty flat to me.  I’ll get it, though.  I feel like I’m getting closer to the secret.  When Misty lays down her dark colors, and then blends them in with her whites, she gets depth.  I get white.

It’ll come, though.

Practice.

 

And what happened to little clay face?  She’s at the little clay face triage –

So, I’ve got her legs on, as you can see.  And, I made her a skirt.  But, I’m not happy with the skirt – it’s really lopside, and delicate.  I think I’m going to papier mache a new one.  And, she needs to be grunged up.  I’ve got some beer bottle caps that are going to make their way on to her, and she may get some rusty hardware from the basement, but I’m not sure.  She’s slowly coming together though.  I thought she would be able to stand up on those corks, but that’s not to be.  She may get a base.  She may join the other dolls on the wall.  Which would defeat the purpose of a hoop skirt, I guess.

Something to think about.
