Thankful



                                                                          Thankful

The Gut Art class has ended and for the last challenge I made an art doll. This time I didn't use a bottle for my armature. I had no idea where I would go after I started with the head. I finished her head with paint, etc. and it stayed mounted on skewer for a week before I took the next step. I doubt if anyone would be so naive as to make something like this without a plan, one body part at a time. I used a cornstarch dough recipe I found online because it dries to a hard strong finish. Like all air dry clays, shrinking and cracking is problem, but it is easy to fill them later.

I decided to title my doll, "Thankful" and will make her part of my Thanksgiving Day center piece. I hope your Thanksgiving Day is blessed and filled with gratitude.
