Ghosty Girl #1 Completed




Today I finished the first of the Ghosties. Here is a pic of the bodies with the heads. the first one I did was Jeanne Antionette aka Madame de Pompadour. Had lots of fun with her. I started with all white trims, pale grey fabrics and lace and using a variety of medium including watercolor paints, dyes, and alcohol inks, tried to make clothes look faded. Next one I am going to distress the fabrics I think. All the directions will be included in the pattern. I really wanted a very white mohair for Jeanne's hair but didn't have any so I mixed in some white mohair I did have and white and silver angelina fibers. She needs something to hold-maybe a candle stick-and a flower on her lapel.
