Ok, guys, great comments- they must be answered.
Ummm, I don't know what will be on the inside of this last lady. The phrase captured spaces came to mind when I looking her over. Any place the wire makes a circle is most definitely a created space. Other spaces are implied by the winding path of the wire. And of course the door that open will reveal yet another captured place.
So if a birdcage captures a bird maybe that is appropriate for this hidden room. I'm thinking the mermaid may have to bide her time to be used later.
Cloisonne or enamel- anyone have a clue as to how to accomplish this on top of paper clay on something that can't really lay flat? I thought of using some sort of resin but it seems problematic. I may try to layer up some gesso. Eeek! What have I gotten myself into?
Any thoughts or suggestions? Seriously!
