As a native Texan, I'm fascintaed with the Day of the Dead figures. I think they're all so cool, especially the elegant Catrinas. I've made my own interpretation of the traditional Catrina, using Creative Paperclay over a really small, dried gourd. Her eyes are deep-set, very dimensional, and I've painted light into them. The stem of the little gourd forms the sculpted neck vertebrae. She wears the traditional huge hat that many Catrinas wear, and the hat sports clay "feathers" draping off the sides of the hat. Heavy aluminum foil makes the armature for the hat. I made several tiny clay flowers for her hat, and bigger clay flowers for the sides of the skull. I've used vivid colors, used high quality acrylic paint and sealer. I've dusted the flowers with finely textured glitter over glue. Then, I sprayed the glittered areas with a fixatif, which all but eliminates that pesky shedding that glitter is so famous for. I can't stand to get glitter on my hands, and I assume you don't either, so I fixed the problem! Finally, I gave this piece a wire, hand-beaded hanger. All the beads are glass. Size is 6" tall, including the hanger, and 3 1/2" across the hat.
The price of this piece is $21.00, which includes First Class Shipping and, in the U.S., delivery confirmation. I'll ship anywhere in the U.S. and Canada. Thanks!
