Holiday March completed

"Holiday March" is finally completed and consists of three figures marching with their musical instruments. The leader is a 7" Elf followed by a 6" Pumpkin Head and a 5" Snowman. They are all sculpted out of Creative paper clay, an air dry clay. Using a technique taught by Jean Bernard, I covered them with kleenex that had been colored with acrylic paint and sealed them with 3 coats of matte varnish. They march on a base that has been covered with antique sheet music and crackled for that warm patina. All figures can be removed for shipping. This is a OOAK piece never to be created again.  This bunch  left me and moved to their new home.
