I am a mad woman that cannot be stopped!!!

This is Deena.






I am trying to try new stuff with each doll I make. With Deena, I added teeth and used plaster cotton stuff. Let me tell you what - that stuff is MESSY!

Anyways, here is an obligatory "I'MA GUNNA EAT'CHA" picture:

Good job!  The face is really well done, but I especially love that you've mixed media by using plaster cloth as clothing and headgear! (Will add a link to her at Photobucket on my Halloween page and probably on the Mixing Media page too  Grin).

She is not a finger puppet. She's actually about 6 or 7 inches tall. She's just there to be there.. oh and to eat your brains.

Now i'll have to look up what plaster cotton is too. . .

ninjanator, plaster cloth, plaster gauze, or plaster wrap, etc, is that stuff that can be purchased as a long strip on a roll (and maybe other ways too) at craft, hobby and probably art supply stores.   It's a loose-weave cotton material (like gauze, cheesecloth) which has been impregnated with plaster; when wetted it will soften and can be draped or shaped, then will harden.  (The fiber gives it more strength and structural possibilities.) You can do-your-own stuff with plaster or Hydrocal and paper towels, used dryer sheets, etc.

Plaster cloth is often used to make mask "blanks" right on real faces, but it can be used in many other ways, over various different kinds of armatures and removable forms, etc, etc.  
After setting/hardening, it can be painted, covered with various clays or other materials, or have all kinds of embellishments added, etc.  It's very neat stuff.

Here are some pics:

And here's a pic of my nephew with several layers of it hardening on his face (Vaseline smeared at hairline to keep plaster from sticking to hair):
