I called this little girl Mavourneen. She is trying to cool off in the heat and humidity. I suppose I should put some water in her rock pool.
I had made a bunch of little faces a while back and finally figured out a way to use one. The composition is fairly simple. First I made a bunch of stones and set them on top of a light bulb to bake. While that was in the oven, I did a rough formation of the arms and body over some wire and then attached that to the hole in her head. I made a simple cane for the scales, cut it down the center and overlapped them all, up to the b- line. (She's fairly ample in that region) Then when she was finished baking, I added some ribbon for hair and festooned it with some glass beads and "seaweed" around the back.
She is sitting there waiting to go to Kenora on Wednesday.
