EfemeraInk....

.....met yesterday (Monday) and we finished our paperclay dolls...we painted faces,




stitched on arms and legs and gave them clothes. I decided mine was going to be a bareback rider in the circus.




compltete with stripy stockings which were painted on. Bits of vintage jewellery and scraps of recycled fabrics made up her outfit.








Rubons make fabulous tattoos!





She hasn't got a name .....all suggestions are welcome!

She immediately made me think of Angela Carter's Nights at the Circus. Although the character in that is an aerialist, I'm sure she'd lend her name to your fabulous bare back rider - I therefore propose the name Fevvers. Great doll Effie, love her stripey stockings, tattoos and wonderful outfit!
