The Crackle was a near disaster ...
Tamar is antiqued ... that is it.
Now I am assembling the body parts hoping to finish in a few days.

The finish is NOT what I had hoped for... she looks very aged and I Like it.
She is done!

To CRACKLE ... or NOT ?

Tamar  is painted ... 
my new dilemma is whether or NOT to give her a crackle finish.  
My inclination is YES, go for it.   

Either way she still needs to be antiqued and
then add those body parts like arms and legs.

I streaked her hair as my children's hair does the same thing
just from being out in the sun. 
  It will be toned down when she is antiqued.

Tamar Angevine ~ Izannah Walker inspired.

I do believe she is ready to start the final sanding 
and then painting. 

I sure hope so cause I am getting impatient.

After several coats of Gesso ...
she is looking much better.
