When Prince Charming arrived
he had just received a torso.
He really needed a head,
and I thought a frog prince
was much more interesting than
a handsome prince.
So, I created a polymer clay
face that was inspired by
Native Frog masks
This photo shows the back view.
He is pretty tall now,
about 16 1/2 inches.
I attached the head using a dowel rod
I inserted that
goes from inside his torso
to inside his new head.
The Frog Prince has acrylic eyes.
The 'frog pearls'
are part of his headdress.
It is made from an old earring.
The hat is made from my own marbled fabric,
with feather embellishments on one side.
His hair is long and is made from nubby yarn.
Left side with fleur-de-lis royalty tattoo.
Legend has it that Venus,
the Goddess of love and beauty loved the Prince.
But she was very jealous of all others.
She presented him with the frog pearls,
magical virtues to help others,
and frog wisdom,
Now he would remain
