What I'm Working On.......

Here are a couple of dolls I am currently working on - among other things. They are both made using my "Izannah" style head mould. The disembodied, unpainted one has a moulded on hairstyle made from glue-impregnated thread and the other has the more typical painted hair. The fabric is a lovely Civil War reproduction cotton I found on my recent trip to the USA - just perfect for a dress!

Both heads are from the same mold? That's a true testament to how much painting can make differences. Love them both, but I especially love the chunky-ness of the one that's painted.

The fabric is lovely... didn't notice it when I read your post over at the Hive - too fascinated with the same thing Dixie mentioned.

Thanks for visiting... there is not a chance of chocolate on our tree... my dogs love chocolate! I too had a dog who managed to find a wrapped box of chocolates from under the tree - I didn't know they were there, since they were a gift from friend. But, although he managed to chew through the box, he also wasn't fussy about the wrappings, and ate those too!!

You are soooo unbelievably talented! I'm not a doll-maker, but am curious to know what material you mold the heads from. My friend does mixed media sculpture, and she makes the faces from self-hardening clay. Just wondering if there's something else she could use.
