Poor Little Thing

Cleaning out, I found this little sculpt I made a while ago.  So I experimented with Annie Sloan Paste Wax as a finish on the head (which is paperclay painted with acrylics).   The paste wax gave it a sheen without it being too over the top shiny varnished.  I'm glad to discover this and might use it on some future dolls.  It does give the feeling of a wax over papier mache a bit.   We don't even want to TALK about how many creatures I have in my work area that need arms and legs.

She looks wonderful Dixie.
I think we all have little critters waiting in the wings to be discovered. LOL
The trick is to not let them sit too long....or they'll gang up on you. :)

Thanks, Ron!

Susan and Mary - it's fun to try some new things. I bought the wax to paint furniture, but it will more useful for me as a doll paint finish. :-)

That is an intriguing finish...(and I have become WAY too dependent on right-click spell check.) :~(

I look forward to seeing all those little creatures in your shop and you bring them out and finish them!
