I painted the background before starting with the beads, in case I decide to let a little show through. As I said before, I have no real plan drawn out for this one, other than framing it with another wreath of flowers and perhaps some beaded fringe...... also, I used diamond glaze as a glue for the small wreath and accidentally spilled a bit on the face. Its impossible to wipe off so...I just painted the rest of the face with it. I didnt really want it to shine, but it does.

I want to start with placing a ring of flowers around the face. To tell you the truth im not sure of the size I want, so I will most likley make two sizes and choose. After the ring is done , Ill carefully cut it out to be attatched at some point later around the face.

This face is hollow and not flat. I molded some baking clay around the edges, and poked some holes into it for easy attachment to a flat surface. I then painted the clay with gold acrylic paint. ( Im still wearing my thinking cap...the possibilities are endless!!)

This will be the second time ive used a ceramic face as a focal point. Ive seen some really great pieces done by other artists that help to inspire me!Most likley, I will be using embroidery, paint and beads. First, I just need to draw up a decent plan. I will post this piece step by step if enough of you are interested!?
