Armature Awaits Paper Clay Application!

The Armature:
•machine sewn "hour-glass" cloth body...
•polyester fiberfill to give the form a bit of fullness...
•a cinched waist (my improvised corset!)...
•a bit of masking tape...
•a shaved styrofoam ball (discarding the center section)...
•a bit MORE masking tape around the head...
•a dab of glue to attach it to the the birdcage...

Standing approximately 22 inches tall, 
she is ready for an application of paper clay 
directly over the cotton duck cloth armature.
Let the FUN begin!


  1. Now she gets to come to life!!!

  2. This is going to be amazing!
    Can't wait to see this one completed. I've always wanted to do
    a bird cage doll. I will be waiting patiently! (yeah, I've ever been patient. LOL)

    P.S. - Tutti & Frutti are freakin' awesome!
    Keep up the great work!

  3. I enjoy seeing how other artists work and one of my favorite things is a WIP. You've got my attention. I can't wait to see how this turns out.

  4. Woohooooo! I always love this much possibility.

  5. This is my favorite part...seeing how the doll starts out!!! Hope you post more photos as you go!!Great job!!~Lorrie
