Headless Amy Is No Longer Naked!

I thought you's be relieved to see she's decent!  She has a little black dress made from gessoed tissue paper and undies as well.  Whew! (I said it for you.)

She also has eyes!  And a 'faux' head to wear on top of her neck.  Working on the arm replacement but not quite finished.  But, please notice her oh- so- stylish hand bag made from a mettallic brillo pad.

I am working so backwards on this one!  I have to paint her which will be more difficult now that she's clothed.  I have to toss around the idea of coloration.  After all- if you've been decapitated your complexion may not be so rosy or peaches and cream.  Any thoughts?


  1. OMG! You crack me up!
    I love everything about her!
    The faux head is awesome. Love the zipper foot and I'm diggin the bag:~) I don't know why, since I haven't ever met a decapitated person, but I keep thinking a slight greenish~blue and veiny? for the color.

  2. I am leaning towards the bluish-greeny cast. Just not sure how to get there? Start with flesh tone and then go over with a thin white tinted with blue? I will have to do some research!

  3. Someone on "Creating the Hive" just suggested a greyish color which makes me think of this antique china doll I just saw....hmmm, decisions!

  4. Headless Amy is amazing! Your sense of humor definitely shows through your wonderful works of art.

  5. Thanks for stopping by and leaving such nice comments. I'm glad to call you a friend.
