Mime came to Paris in the early 1800's. It was here that the most famous character, the lovesick Perriot, developed by Bohemian Jean Gaspard Batiste Deburau, was founded. My newest ornament is based on my interpertation of the original French mime.
Perriot's head is sculpted from Paperclay. I painted his entire head with a pearl acrylic and then added his makeup. His base is another wonderfully old wooden bobbin from Nannykin's sewing box and I added decorative papers, black glitter and an organza bow. A sheer black ruffle collar and a black beret complete his costume.
