Santos cage doll



she looks regal with her crown
 

 

I found my Santos cage doll a nice crown this week.
Still had to adjust the size to fir her head, but I think it looks beautiful.
This Santos took a while to finish and I will do some things differently again next time around. I sculpted the body and the head with homemade paper clay and made jointed arms as well {well they could be a lot better, next time I will do this in a different way for sure} For the cage part I used twigs from our garden and a driftwood piece I found at the beach for the stand. Her wings were white wings to begin with, I aged them with my own patina recipe and after painting the doll I gave her a complete crackle finish which I grunged up a bit too. So she had been waiting for a nice crown for quite some time and finally I got this one. Happy, happy ! It makes her look so royal, what do you think ?
