5 ½” Mardis Gras Mask Lady


This lovely lady came to me glued very poorly.  I had to take her apart and remove the old glue.  Once those steps were completed, I glued her back together and filled the gaps with putty. Then I moved on to painting the piece.

I used gold foil for the accent on the top of her hat.  This is a rare head vase valued at $1,400.
