Waiting For the Train gets a new hat and goggles

 I entered this doll into the 2020 Monmouth County Senior Art Show.  There is a size limitation and her current hat put her over the limit so I made her a new one-a boater and added a pair of goggles.  The goggles are made from wire and die cut mini gears all covered with Metal tape then colored with alcohol inks and embellished with tiny metal wings.  I also placed her on a larger base because I want to add a gate sign and a low chain and barrier around 3 sides of the base.  Think the sign will say Gate 9 1/2!  Stay tuned!  

She won first place in the Professional Sculpture category and got an Honorable Mention in the State Show.  

This year I entered "The Game's Afoot" in the County show and she won 1st place.  Judging for the State show is next Month.  I will try to post a page with the goggle directions for anyone interested!
