Angelina Jolie as Maleficent in miniature !

  Most of the last week has been spent working on my miniature Maleficent. She was commissioned by a customer but was already on my list of "must make" dolls so I was delighted to work on her !
 Maleficent stands around 6 inches tall , although her horns add a little extra height. She is sculpted from polymer clay over a metal armature . Angelina has such beautiful strong features I really enjoyed trying to get her likeness into the clay .
It was a challenge to recreate her cloak in miniature without swamping the doll but I am pleased with the way it turned out, the fine silk I used made the job a little easier !
I'm not sure what the life size Angelina would think, but I really enjoyed working on the miniature one :)
