Pudding Head!

My husband calls dolls like this one "Pudding Heads"........and you can see why. This baby has a very round stuffed cloth head, which is painted to look a bit three dimensional, although the face is quite flat. So it doesn't really work to view this kind of doll in profile....in fact it looks weird. But they look OK from a front or almost-front view. Pudding Head or not, they are great fun to make! I found some premmie-sized real baby clothes that fit this doll perfectly, but she needs some hand-knits as well.........maybe a cardigan, a beanie and some bootees.

Thanks Robin! She has the kind of face only a mother could love, don't you think? Poor little Pudding!

Your little Pudding Head is wonderfully precious. I am amazed at the painting you do to achieve this look.

Thanks Mary.......I love doing this kind of painting - prefer to do it in oils, but acrylics are a bit more practical!

It's amazing how you capture such a three dimensional look using only paint!

Hi Susie! Great doll! I wasn't sure where to sign up for your giveaway, so I thought I'd just say hello here.
Thank you for hosting it! :-)

What a sweet little Pudding Head! The shading is very persuasive, from the front she has a really convincing 3D face!
