I felt inspired by a few statues I own of Bast, the Egyptian cat goddess, so I decided to sculpt a doll of her.   =(^.^)= She is made of leftover sculpy, painted with a mixture of gold and black paint, and dressed with a few scraps of fabric and broken jewelry fragments that I happened to have around. She's been put together with copper wire and is jointed, so I may make her into a marionette someday. The cool thing about this project is that it cost me nothing. I was lucky enough to have everything on hand because I tend to be a pack-rat when it comes to craft suplies ^_<.

For those of you with dial-up internet, I am sorry! The pictures just didn't look good squished any smaller.

Chillin'

Relaxing with my inspiration:

Thanks for looking ^_^


Another note: I also sculpted and painted the scarab pendant she is wearing, but it wasn't until I saw naked_ninja's scarabs that I was inspired to put legs on mine with the leftover copper wire. Thanks for being an inspiration and helping me spruce up my pea-sized scarab!

That is crazily cool.   Shocked  I think it would be neat to make a bigger one, and set it in the yard as a garden decoration.

 Shocked That is amazing! You are extremely talented. I saw dolls a little bit like this one going for $350 at a Renn Faire. And I have to say, I like your doll better  Wink
