Dia de los Muertos and Marionette Challenge!

I am participating in 2 ADO challenges this month, The Marionette and Dia de los Muertos
(Day of the Dead) theme.
I made a polymer clay doll holding a tiny day of the dead
marionette made of paper-clay with tiny flowers made of cold porcelain.
That way I have both themes in one piece:)
Here are the WIP's-

the tiny doll is almost 2 inches tall
The cold porcelain flowers are tiny!
Here are the hands and boots as well as the painted face.
Next comes making a foam, cloth and wire body
Then the making of a dress with bloomers and stockings as well as wigging and making a mask for the girl and a small theatre as well.

Im already 90% done I just need to tie the skelly's strings to the girls fingers and add some details to the whole piece.

I will upload the photos tomorrow.

Have a great night!
