I was thrilled to have been able to get my mitts on this: A single bottle holder Babushka doll!
Sadly, this bottle holder only holds a small gift sized wine.
I have painted a set of Marie Antoinette dolls before, which had been loads of fun to do. Except I felt that I didn’t get to fully explore the gluttonous factor of being a French aristocrat. This single Babushka doll enabled me to go full-on with all sorts of deliciousness.
The garland of pastries decorating Marie Antoinette’s hair.
…along with a ship…
…and a pastry headband…with a mini portrait.
All right, several mini portraits!
There is one rule I have when painting delectable comestibles: Eat first. It saves me from attacking my piggy bank for a bit of odd change in the middle of a session before knocking over small children to get at the candy counter.
