Rose is 14 1/2" tall, dressed in red silk which looks orange in the photo. Her head, hands and feet are made with a polymer clay mix. The base she stands on is hand painted with small delicate roses on a black surface. The paint is liquitex acrylic sealed in Krylon spray gloss. A vintage jewelry piece adorns her back waist line. She wears a red seed bead headband with two emerald glass drops. She has angora goat fiber "mohair" used for her hair. It was furnished by Shannon, one of my special angora goat girls. The fiber has some gray in it so I dyed it black. Since all the stuff had to be brought out about 2 pounds of it was dyed black for future use. It has to be washed, dyed, dried, combed, shampooed, rinsed, conditioned, rinsed, dried, combed, glued to the head, styled, sprayed with hairspray. Sometimes I think I'm crazy for doing all this. Oh well!
