again I cast Legs with Ice Resin. I used some oil paint to patina the legs and painted the shoes pink. (gotta love a pink heal!)
I used Aquamarine, pyrite, garnet and appetite in various cuts and shapesI made the skirt with lots to teal, garnet, grey and robins egg blue thread and ribbon. I love these colors
I sewed several layers of ribbon together for the back
When worn, she looks like she is dancing. Her legs sway with movementI made a bunch of sterling bead caps and stamped "love", "hope" and "life"on them. I thought they worked well with these rough garnet nuggets.
I aged all the silver I used to wire wrap. I age all my wire first as I found...much to my dismay, that if you try to age it in place around ribbon, it will erode the ribbon. I use silver/black to age silver. I don't know if it does it to all ribbon, but it defiantly MELTS organza!!! I hand a beautiful piece completed and decided the silver was to shiny so I added some silver/black and the ribbon melted into a lump of gooey yuck!!!my piece fell apart. I now patina first and then clean it in baking soda to stop any further action on the metal.
