Another New Piece Celest

Okay this is exactly how I've been feeling lately! Meet Celest...she used to fly over the creative kingdom warning the other steampunk souls of what the Evil Soul Sucker was really up to. That is until the Soul Sucker caught her. He made sure she couldn't tell another soul by surgically zipping her mouth closed, then he broke her halo. Edna and her band of rebels rescued Celest, but not before it was sadly too late. Celest cries tears of blood over not being able to sing her song of warning.

She's completely hand sculpted, out of paper clay, over an armature. She is 10 1/2" tall, by 3" wide, by 3" deep. She has a vintage watch part for her left eye and one on her chest. Her wings are made of a vintage belt buckle. Her neck was some kind of vintage wooden spool or bobbin? One top of her head is a small clear knob (I think it's acrylic but I'm not sure) and her broken halo is from a vintage clock. I painted her in layers, then sealed her with a matte finish.

I've just added her to my etsy shop :o) http://www.etsy.com/listing/66357121/steampunk-souls-paper-mache-art-doll I was able to work on a few more pieces, both skellies for STJ's update that's coming up soon too! Stay tuned for those pics! Have a great night everyone! xo Michele
