Remember the head from last post? It’s finished now. I had imagined it like one of those vintage wooden display dummies, where the paint is all cracked and yellowed. And I set to work to create something with the same vintage feel to it- without taking the pains of waiting for the paint to crack.
I sculpted the head on a wig stand, covered it in tea-drenched paper towels in the same way I made the background and painted her. Her hair is not at all vintage of course, I just liked the look of it.
And since she is going to be on display with a mask in her face I wanted the hair to look special. You are not going to see much of her face after all.
