Mademoiselle Eloise!



Ahhh, I actually did get to finish one of the three clay dolls I've had waiting to dry. She reminds me of a little French lady so I named her Eloise. I spent the good part of the day painting her eyes over and over. Next time I sculpt I'm going do the eyes and the lips a bit different than the way I've been doing them. I like the features to be a bit less prominent than the way I've been doing them and have more definition with paints and shading. Au Revoir!

She is just adorable and what a great name you gave her! I have enjoyed our group so much because it inspires so many creative thoughts about what I want to do next. Now, is this your third doll? I am still on my second...terrible to say. I stopped between dolls to finish some projects I was doing before the class.

Thanks from me for the Fab award, too, Kimmie! I've done my duty and passed it on, and also managed to list ONLY FIVE obsessions.
