I have been wanting to make a bust for some time, but was not sure what I would do, or when I would get time to devote to making it - or even how it would look!
I began anyway as I knew what I would do to make the body. Easy. Then started on the face and it sat for a day. I rummaged around and found some likely looking scraps, and some lace that had possibilities - still unsure of what I would do.
I then started on the face, and when that was done had a little think about how I would be able to make hair that looked the part, so made a toque - I looked it up! It means cushion for the hair! It seems ladies with this hairstyle could wear it so for a week and even had special bed hats made to accommodate their hair!
Anyway, in order to put eyelashes on, I had to cover the hair as I had used Wool staples combed out, and needle-felted in place. Therefore, strands catch on everything and annoyingly tangle in the black thread I was using!
It was successful!
So I played with curls and pearls in her hair, feathers and lace
Showing off her Beauty Spot! Oh La!
I like this view of her, reflecting maybe.............?
I hope you like her. I am going to make her into a pattern. She is fun to do!
