|Cleaning out my studio and finding the bird heads has inspired a new piece. Not quite sure what she will end up looking like, but she will be part bird/part human.
|So the body was built on wire with apoxie sculpt, which I really enjoyed. I could get the legs and body really smooth. The head was sculpted with Prosculpt.
|Her arms and torso will also be painted white and my thought now is that they will be covered with black antique netting that I have, with tiny sequins on it. So the white will show through.
|She will be a black & white bird, with magenta highlights.....maybe.....
|More to come...... :)

Here is a little bone fae, created with mink bones, and donated to Robin's Relief Fund auction. These have sold for $450 at the Chalk Farm Gallery, so you can pick up this little guy for a lot less and help a wonderful woman heal. You can see the auction on ebay by clicking here:

|Today I uncovered wonderful inspiration in nooks and crannies of my studio mess! Time to clean up, clean out, label, stack, store and start anew. Ahhhh....it feels so good!
|Of course, with the help of Miss Millie....
|I had forgotten all about these! I found these in a cobwebby, messy, wonderful old barn/store/broncante in France several years ago. Aren't they fabulous!! They are from hats from the 1800's or early 1900's. I am so inspired!!
