For those of you who remember "Carmen Miranda", this is my tribute to her :)
This gal is 27" long. Her head is a dried gourd with clay attached and her features sculpted. I base coated the head black, then a coat of crackle medium, then paint, aging and sealing. I used black lace around her head, and attached each "fruit" individually. Her earrings are an old pair of my hoop earrings :)
Carmen's body, arms and legs are fabric, painted and aged.
Her dress and bloomer are sewn from osnaburg that I have aged. I used vintage gold ric rack around the bottom of her skirt and also on her sleeves. She has beaded fringe hanging in the center of the shawl. Her boots are painted on and she wears striped stockings!
Price is: $175 and includes shipping to the lower 48 States.
