Muses in clay

As well as experimenting in fabric, I have been making little plaques of my figures in modelling clay trying out different ideas.

Originally I intended to make them 3-D, but I enjoyed making them flat and so have not developed them beyond 2-D.

Much to the children's indignation, I have been using some of their playdough tools to get shapes.  They were placated when I gave up some of my precious clay and let them play with it too.
It is a new material for me and lovely and tactile.  Unfortunately, I made some too thin, so this one got decapitated.

I have painted some of them, using siennas and golds, but part of me prefers the plain white.  What do you think?
