Inspired by New Romantics- or back to my youth!

This sculpey head is for a DC sawp hosted by AngyB. I used bronze Eberhard Faber Powder and gloss lacquer. After using the fibres for the badana I mounted the head in friendly plastic. I gold embossed the sides and printed the words onto vellum and attched with a gold brad.
My thanks to Spandau Ballet for the inspiration! I was listening to their record 'Gold' on the radio when I had the idea and it seemed fitting to use some of the lyrics from their song which were freely available to download!
I think the line - 'always believe in your Soul' is a thought provoking one - believing in yourself is probably one of the most important things a person can do.

I remember that song. 1980 something. I was in college, I know that much. I can see why this piece reminds you of that tune.
