Part of WIP

My WIP on this piece has been delayed because I opted to go ahead and have cataract surgery on the right eye. But I did finish the first figure....there will be two more figures marching behind this tiny elf. I think one will be a pumpkin head and one a is called "Holiday March".  The little elf is sculpted from paper clay and overlayed with one layer of a painted kleenex...a techinque I learned from Jean Bernard. I already had some of the tissue that I had painted and pulled away one layer and put it onto the figure with a wet brush and when it dried I put at least three layers of matt varnish over it. His wings are also finished with the tissue.  I also decopauged antique sheet music onto the base.
