FACES FINALLY FINISHED

Hi Everyone!

Thanks for all the well wishes for my mom. She seems to be doing better. Extremely tired and achy but with the meds none of the icky part of the flu.

This is a good day for the 3 Fs, Faces Finally Finished. I had these faces carved, plastered, leathered and waiting for me to finishes them for months now. Last week I decided enough was enough and everything sitting on my work table that needs to be completed is getting completed. Here are the two faces.

Both so different
 Coil Me Up is a face covered in Pig hide. Very soft and the color is amazing.
I couldn't resist the copper wire.

African Queen is just that she is so elegant. The leather is deer suede dies purple.
The jewelry is a part of a very large front and back necklace I created in 1987. I works perfectly here.
 The head piece is African Porcupine Quill died purple with Saddle Natural Furnace Roaster Feathers.

Both pieces were air brushed to lighten and heighten the leather folds.
For any one who has been to my  house they know I have faces covering my walls in every room especially my living room.

  5. Very cool and unique to me. Where did you find inspiration for having the faces done this way in leather? How big are they? I have lots of questions. I have never seen anything like it, but then, I don't get out much ~lol~
