A woman has captured Colonel Gaddafi - in Plasticine. Leicester-born artist Karen Caldicott, 51, who now lives in New York, makes famous faces from the childs play putty. Her work also includes eight inch-high sculptures of Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, Hillary Clinton and Apple boss Steve Jobs. Her Gaddafi bust cheekily features cuts and bruises - perhaps a glimpse at the Libyan leaders imminent future. Ms Caldicott first sketches her subject before painstakingly building up the shoulders and head, piece by piece, in Plasticine. Once she is happy with the features, the bust is painted in acrylic. She said: This Plasticine is the kind that is used in stop-motion/Claymation animation. The fact that it never really hardens makes it the perfect material to continually make adjustments, which art directors often ask me to do. Ms Caldicott studied at Londons Royal College of Art before moving to New York in her late 20s. ON
