"Flamenco dancer" making

 Hand clapping, percussive footwork and complex hand and body movements are what make Flamenco a difficult but impressive art form. I do not dance but keen on making mixed media figurine with nuno felt costumes.
How to make it? See the observant guy..... he's telling it......
Mogi, "wondering what mum's up to.  She always said it's none of my business. I'm quite curious........"

Dipped the cotton stripes in Paverpol liquid, wrapped around the skeleton 

Intended to make it a dark beauty but found the face has stains, thus painted it in white aclyric 

Dried overnight.  Made the outfits with the "not-so-good" euc leaves printed silk chiffon by nuno felt.  
Made a nuno felt top with merino wool.
Fit into the body
Cut another two pieces of silk chiffon of the table dress shape and do the nuno felt.
Done the dress and put into the body
Wrapped the glass bottle with same fabric as stand
Mogi, "well, mum made it......"
Mogi, " I'm always the one behind a woman ........"
Ya, Flamenco dancer in nuno felt dress that has the rich textures and layers.
Ready to dance with the rhythm of the wave 

My heartfelt thanks to Sharon Gerhart who's so generous to introduce me the making of Paverpol I then further develop it with nuno felt.
More poses of the figurine here .
Linking with from-dream-to-reality party

  3. Terriea, I did go back on several of your postings and commented so hope you get to read what I wrote. I am so far behind with reading about all my friends. It will take me a week or so to just catch up.
