Or maybe it's, "I just love being a Ghoul". I really wasn't sure what title I was going to give this post.
This ghoul is my first but maybe not my last. She was such fun to work on that when I got ready to paint her I had several different ideas but stuck with the original and putting the rest into the maybe file.
There were a couple of firsts with this piece, one of which is she's the first of my figures to have an actual neck. That leads me to another first. Since the neck needed to be strong enough to support her head I needed to leave the armature for it in place.
So, here she is, my first ghoul which would lead you to believe there may be more, who knows, maybe there will be.
This is Wisteria. She has been around for many years and has adjusted to "life" as a ghoul. Although she has lost her once beautiful hair, she still feels feminine and pretty. Since she's discovered face art, she is constantly seeking out mirrors to admire herself.
Wisteria's gown has lace embellishments around the neck, down the front and at the edge of her jacket. She also has lace as a band around her head.
Wisteria stands just over 11" tall and is approximately 4" wide. She is painted with several layers of acrylic paints and sealed to protect her from the elements. Like all of my other pieces, she is a one of a kind figure created from paper mache clay without the use of any molds. She will be listed for sale in my Magick Shop.
Just a reminder, Maggie is having her drawing for the wonderful Santa today, so don't forget to pop over to Off My Rocker to see who's the lucky winner.
I hope you've enjoyed meeting Wisteria and as always, thanks for stopping by.
