A Marcel Wave

I love the 1920's, and I would have loved to have a "Marcel Wave". My hair is poker straight, and despite my Mother's occassional efforts to persuade it to hang in ringlets it remained stubbornly uncurled.....

But I can always live the fantasy via the medium of paperclay and thread. It is taking a long time, but eventually this small bust will sport a spectacular (if I do say so myself) heavily waved "do"

Session one

Session two

Eat your heart out Francois Marcel Grateau!!!!


  1. I was taught how to Marcel wave during the 70's, just one of those odd skills you pick up along the way...

  2. Oh, I'm so jealous!!!! It looks so stylish :0)
