A Halloween Pumpkin Art Doll
This is a hand-sculpted, and completely original art doll. You can find it in my Etsy shop here. Just a warning though, she will only be on the site for a short 2 weeks before she is coming with me to the Lake County Art Fair in Mundelein, IL. So if she tickles your fancy, grab her before someone else does!
Her head is a Styrofoam ball with a layer of paper clay over top. I then sculpt the details of her face into the paper clay (check out my tutorial on paper clay here).
Her body is made from a chipboard cone that also has a layer of paper clay over top. Her hands are sculpted from paper clay as well. To add texture to her dress, I used a rubber stamp to stamp into the wet clay.
Once the clay has dried, I paint the entire piece and add fabric trims and buttons.
The little skull head she is carrying is actually from a ice cube mold and I added a little metal washer over its eye.
The base which she sits is a metal candlestick.
