I gotta get in one more post with a few updates. I've really started making dolls in earnest. As usual, I have several started in various stages of construction. I'm trying some multimedia dolls and cloth dolls with sculptured faces.
The first one is a paper mache mannequin that I painted and have had hanging around for a while. I made my very first paper clay head and glued it on. Now I have to make some sort of arms from paper clay, too.
Did I mention there is no laughing while looking at my blog? Well, seeing this, my own original creation of a stump doll, might just make you break that rule. This was my attempt to make a doll with a bosom. I had a really hard time trying to stuff her into her dress. I did learn a lot from the process, but the poor thing looks a bit lopsided. And now I have to a head and arms for her.
This is Fanny the Fandango Doll. She has a ready-made body that I'm painting and beading. I beaded her face.
This is a purely fantasy doll. I don't even know what it will be when I'm done. I'm altering the body a bit and just going with the flow for beading.
