We found this broken figurine at an antique mall in KY and have been tweaking it over the last week. First, I repainted their fancy clothes a darker shade of blue and covered all the gold, and then put the piece into the kiln to see what would happen. What happened is all the dirt fired off and the whole thing is nice and clean! We are now working on patterning the clothes and adding a background to complete the scene - a branch filled with tiny rats seems like it will do the trick. (sort of like the Pied Piper of Hamelin) Will keep you posted.
