Glory the Glamfish
The doll group I joined had planned an exhibit for the Parkgate Library in North Vancouver. It was an underwater theme and they already had enough mermaids so I volunteered to make a fish. Robin Reid had taught us to paint faces at one of our meetings so I decided this was the time to practice. I loved creating a personality and she became Glory, a very girly fish, who loves bling! My stash had plenty of bling that complimented the fabric that spoke to me. A Purple and blue batik was the start. I sculpted her body from foam, covered it with a thin fibre batting, then shaped the fabric to fit. It was a design that evolved as I went along. Such fun. She is currently on display with the other sea creatures at the library till May 29th.
