I have one. I just thought of- (actually I just inherited my great
grandmothers mortar and pestle out of rock which must be at least 80
years old and I placed it on top of our china cabinet which holds
ethnic toys and artifacts, next to it is this corn husk doll on a
stand). So I was thinking of Sharon (bk)and her wire sculpture
figures. My idea is similar, a combination of both. Wire which is
formed to a figure and attached to a base. Corn husk which is formed
over wire and then painted with acrylic paint. ( mine is a jaguar
with spots) clay hands and feet. Then a plaster or clay mask which
you can get very small molds for at "Michaels". Decorate the
finished mask in any animal finish. Can make several different
animals. TM Sandra Summers-Barrick (CP)
Or make miniature giant puppets. YOu could do the clay vehicles or
musicians that are very popular in stores.
