ADO Art Doll Challenge

I signed up for the ADO Art Doll Challenge. This was a challenge open to all artists to create an Art Doll after one of the four elements ~ Air, Earth, Fire, Water.


My choice was easy. The idea came to me right away. I wanted to do the Fire Element. After all my birth sign is also a Fire sign.




My Art Doll is a 'make-do' ~ using a cast-off candlestick for the base. Her face and upper body are sculpted from paperclay. She is holding a flame in her hand.


Her skirt is paper-mache covered with tissue paper to resemble a flame.


Take a moment to visit the ADO Blog. There you will find a list of all the participating Artists and links to their Blogs where pictures of their Art Dolls can be found. This is definitely a feast for the eyes!
