Miss Mamie Stepping Lively

miss_mamie

Miss Mamie is one of the group of physically challenged Woodland Scenics figures. Mamie was an ugly white lady with a knee length plaid skirt and sweater. I thought she needed a little more dignity, with a nice blue jacket and black skirt. I’m still struggling with the best method to lengthen a skirt. Currently, I am using multiple coats of Elmer’s Glue. It can’t be anything with texture, because texture in this scale would not be visible to the naked eye. If anyone has a better idea, let me know!
