This is the first face I started with. She kind of took on her own personality and turned out to look like a Gypsy Girl. I liked it so just let her be what she wanted to be. Darn, Even a piece of clay can be boss of me. She will be one of the five pieces to enter the Art Show.
These faces are a new kind of project for me. They were to be the start for cloth body dolls. Not working with clay and painting of the faces OR working with the fabric stiffener they were quite a challange and I had a deadline to enter them coming up much too fast. This caused me to try to cut down the needed time for a whole doll to do the wall hanging faces. One of my memories for Feb comes from time in Louisiana in Feb when the Marti Gras happens. This brought this kind of face came to mind. They are all made with a mould from Sherry Goshon ( You can see her work at: http://sherrygoshon.blogspot.com/
At one point of making a total mess with fabric stiffener I was discuraged with the total mess I was in and ran out of patience for working with it. Was ready to give up the whole thing of making them for our Feb. Art Center display. I went to bed after fighting with the Fabric face disappointed and ready to forget the Art Show. The next morning bright and early with a clear mind , not normaly being a quitter, I decided that I should try one more time. Well, much to my surprise everything I put my hand to was working. YEAaaa I will be taking all my entries down to put in the Art Center on Sunday, The Big Football day.

Finally finished this little Gypsy Face to where I am half way satisfied. She was to be a doll but due to a time factor to enter her at the Art Center I changed ideas. Now I have found the papers for the entries and find they were to be listed at the Center by the 20th. OPPS. Oh well, This made good practice for another time. Also made me think twice about working with the fabric stiffener. I was able to make a real mess with with this product.
