Thank you Home Depot!
I made a mad dash to Home Depot this a.m. and they had wood
roping by the boat load... So her skirt is ready to be base-coated.
I also gave her some ears! (and copper-beaded earrings)
Her "halo" is a brass gear taken from a circa 1867 mantle clock
that Katie found years ago at a local thrift shop. I am loving that
re-purposed victorian pin and brass gear breastplate!
A little sanding, one more coat of gesso and then her base-coat!
