Miss Half & Half

This is " Miss Half & Half", named for the label on the old tobacco tin that makes it look like a banner a beauty contestant wears. Her legs are two recycled paintbrushes I painted then aged . Her neck is an old thread spool, cut in half and that crown she's wearing is a re-purposed toilet paper tube. I created her arms with clay and wire, and the little blue bird she's holding ,too. Now the head started as a paper mâché apple. I added some paper clay, old book pages, and tissue paper. She's a winner, alright, my little Miss Half & Half.

  1. She's adorable - I love the use of all the 'found objects'. You're the mistress of 'repurpose - reuse'!
