I am so happy I decided to make this art doll! I've had her on my art table for about two weeks. Every time I looked at her, I saw something that didn't quite work. I believe (because) she was tired of being torn apart and reassembled, she took it upon herself to guide me in my endeavor to make her as beautiful as possible. All things are possible when you have someone to guide you along the right path!

COMPONENTS/MATERIALS: I CHOSE parts of eight different molds, and individually molded them to create her head. Faux pearls represent her Starstone. I love using molds!! The white cabochon with two rhinestones was attached to a white ribbon, and I added her sign/emblem the CRAB to the bottom. Cancer's head is surrounded by muted neutral gray tulle. Cancer's ruling plant is MOON which sits atop her head. Her torso was created with slinky, over-the-top silver fabric, painted with Iris and Peacock Blue Inktense, then stained with Baked Earth and Dark Aquamarine Inktense colors. I used the approximate colors to stain her face. I took apart a vintage pearl necklace of mine and with it, formed a circle at the bottom of her torso. She stands on a 3/4" x 3/4" piece of recycled wood from an old computer desk of mine -- which was altered to match the rest of the doll. She has three coats of matte clear varnish for protection that will last indefinitely! L 12" x 6" W and includes the 3/4" wood base.
