So do you think the grand queen Marie Antoinette will come back and haunt me for making her a 'cigarette girl'? It wasn't my intention when I began this Inchie doll. Her skirt is from a painting of the palace Versaille and the whole cake thing just took on a life of itself. Marie's face is from a painting of her as a young girl, just before the marriage that would make her queen of France. She's decorated with metallic pearl paints and alcohol inks. The inchie is, of course, her torso and tray.
