White Lilly- progress

Hi all!

I'm working on White Lilly, and wanted to share.

I've designed a special body pattern for her, to make her able to stand alone. To enhance it, I've stuffed her feet with a mix of salt and white glue. Than came sculpting- her face is clay over cloth. I've gessoed her, than painted with oil paints- a light wash on her body to accent the shadows, and give her antique look, than painted her features.

It took me some time to realize the kind of hair she was after, but it than became clear that human hair is the answer. now she has a soft, light brown hair, and I'm off to fashion a lilly white dress!
