Dancing lady Sculpture without clay/ Aged brass patina look

After sharing my Mother and baby sculpture, I got lots of requests to share more sculptures so here is my one more sculpture but using different materials and different technique. I used cardboard for main structure and tried to give it aged brass look. Patina is a natural tarnish that forms on the surface of brass and other metals. Adding a patina finish to brass pieces can give those pieces an aged look that many people find appealing.
You can get readymade patina paste which are available in market to give that texture. Here I used only paints.

Materials used:
Cardboard, Paper, Tissue paper, POP(Plaster of paris) Glue, Sandpaper, Metal wire, Varnish, Acrylic Paints

Here is a Video Tutorial

You can save this image to make stencil
Cutout the image
Draw the image on cardboard using papercutout
Cutout 2 images from cardboard
Make a metal wire support
Cut more pieces to fill in the gap
Stick all cardboard pieces with support loop in between.
Make the base
Cover it with normal paper or even newspaper and glue layer, I am not using tissue paper as i want something strong. You can Paint the sculpture at this stage but if you want to make it more strong then follow the step below.
Soak some tissue paper in glue and make face and other body features with it. let it dry and cover the figure using texture paste or POP glue mixture. I used @ tablespoon POP+2 tablespoon Glue and 1 tspoon water to make paste. Give 2 or more coats and let it dry. Make it smooth using sandpaper.
Paint it with Metallic Gold, You can also use black as base coat and highlight it with any metallic paint as I did with mother and baby sculpture.
Highlight it with aqua blue and apply varnish.
This beautiful sculpture is ready
