Marie Antoinette is done in the Day of the Dead or Dia de los Muertos style.  I purposely made her skull extra big to give it a comical appearance.  She was formed using styrofoam, covered in newspaper strips, then paper clay, sanded and then painted with acrylic paints and sealed with an acrylic sealer.

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.
