Kid Medusa Munny

Description

This was my second Munny. The snake hair is the only sculpted element, done using polymer clay. There was a bit of experimentation with this one, as I had to set the eyes in before I baked her, so if they had melted she would have been totally ruined, or if not - at least more grotesque than cute...
Anyway, as a note to you munny makers, this style of acrylic doll eye can withstand 225 F - although they did cloud over a bit, I had to glaze them with clear acrylic to get them to brighten up again but it worked just fine.
I'm not super thrilled with the color on this one, although I did enjoy making some Burtonesque stripey snakes.
I don't know if it's clear from this shot but her hair is in little pigtails, which is why I thought of her as Kid Medusa.. well that and the SD format, just lends itself to cuteness.
A note about the hair - it weighs a ton, I had to add wedges to her feet to change the center of balance so she could stand up. Else she was rather backheavy and just tipped over. It was solved easily enough but it still makes me nervous about her stability. She's about 9 months old now though and still in good shape.
