Inspiration Piece: Pinup cartoon girls and the corpse bride

Inspiration Artist: Colette Falardeau and Tim Burton

The materials used on my piece were a piece of canvas and newsprint strips for the dress, a wooden block some thin wooden planks and wooden dowels for the chair, wire and oil based clay for the body, cardboard for the hat, polymer clay for the puppets, rope for puppet strings, water based paint for color, Elmer's white glue and one glue stick. The only techniques used were the layering and pasting technique with glue and a little water to make the dress also a hand building technique to make the body and the puppets. Some of the tools that I used included basic sculpting tools for the clay, a drill to make holes in the wood block for the chair and a glue gun for the glue stick.
