The second picture was my first try. I wrapped & decoupaged & paint washed. I did not like it at all. In steps the master (husband). He added a neck with the help of paper towels. He then put grout all over & smoothed it to perfection. I asked for a collar & it happened. I had the top piece ( bought long ago) I used the grout to cement her head. Now she is just the best.

I have been working in my newly cleaned studio & set her on one of my stools. Volia' she has her skirt on and ready to go!
