and now a body.....


Her form is now done and drying.  I used plaster of paris strips over wire and foil.  Once the plaster is dry and hard, I will add a layer of apoxie sculpt and then create her costume....the most fun part.
I'm really enjoying this piece.  I wonder...as she takes form....in what century she lived and when and how she became....vampire.

Wow Marilyn ~ She's turning out wonderfully well...
I imagine you might use some of your insights when you went to Paris to think about where she came from!

I'm really loving seeing the process of your AMAZING art dolls. I can't think of an artist who starts at scratch like this & makes such amazing things. I can't wait to see her costume!

Marilyn, I'm loving how she is progressing. Looking at her I feel like I'm wondering through the dark halls of some old French quarter New Orleans
mansion. She is dark and mysterious, but also has an empathy about her. Wonderful! So excited to see her completed!

I dont know, but I think she has a musician's heart. Was she an opera singer?
