This Wise Healing Doll is my first attempt at using air dry paper clay.  The armature is wire wrapped with masking tape.  I used paper wrapped on the arms and legs for clothing.  The loin cloth is also paper. I painted the doll with various inks and acrylic paints.  Adornments range from my parrot's feathers, beads,  wire, shells and other miscellaneous items.  The stand is separate: made from air dry paper clay layered on old CDs glued together to give it a little weight.  I used self-adhesive beads, inks, paints, found shells and objects to decorate the base.  The doll can be removed from the stand.
