In Which I Go 3-D

I'm not quite sure why I've been creating Goddess type female forms lately. A few weeks back my Felt Club project of a jointed doll took on definitely Goddess-like proportions, now this.

Tentatively I've titled her "Antiquity". She has the appearance of an aged artifact, created by gold leaf paint and patina spray over paper clay on the torso, and gold leaf and patina over collaged Latin text on the base, both with a smudging of walnut ink to stain and age it a bit. The gold leaf left the tiniest bit of raised texture, so when the patina sank into the paper clay it really gives a pitted appearance that doesn't show well in photography.

This makes collage/mixed media on canvas and mixed media sculpture that I've, if not conquered, at least made a decent showing in. Next up - more knitting (I'm still plugging away on the 10 in 2010 shawl challenge) and some assemblage/junk art. Unless of course something manages to distra.....Oooooh, shiny, looky!

  1. Very nice! At first I thought it was your felting project finished differently than expected. I love the patina!
