Industrial Altered Dolls Head

Hi all
Todays weird steampunky piece is made from a tatty, bald dolls head. I wanted to try out Andy's new Creative Expressions Paints so it seemed just the thing!

 To start with, a layer of black chalky finish paint, then Rust paint all over, topped with a Lava Paste face pack!
Stubby hair stumps covered up with a plaster wrap skull cap, which I then painted with layers of Quinacridone Gold, a hint of Rust and a smattering of the Cobalt Teal, The face is painted with layer upon layer of Quinacridone Gold, Cobalt Teal, Rust and Yellow, first using a brush, then a sponge to just highlight the texture.
I made a metal headband by threading metal nuts onto wire, added feathers and metal embellishments over the eyes. Then I took a very old battered cake time, turned the push up base part upside down and threaded wire through the air holes.
A bunch of feathers added to the top for a bit of fun, once the wire frame was finished and another metal embellishment on the top of the feathers to hide the feather stems and match the eyes.
Thanks for looking. For a bit more detail, visit my blog here.
