paper clay doll # 3

















I've had a horrible cold for the last 10 days and so I've been home bound trying to get over it, giving me lots of time to finish my latest doll. Actually she is a mixed media doll: her head, chest and lower legs are paper clay, her arms are polymer clay and her body is stuffed cloth. She does not have a name yet, but her "Title" is "Keeper of my Dreams".


She stands 7.5" tall. And amazingly, she actually stands on her own! I am learning a lot about doll making. I know her face and arms are 'rough' but I am pleased with my progress. Each time is an improvement.


I am thinking that I may make her a little bird cage to hold. Inside the cage I will put a corked bottle that holds my dreams: a physical way she keeps my dreams.

She is just gorgeous. This is your third doll? Amazing! Don't stop now. I love the pink clothes and the sweet little plaits. The rosette on the back gives her interest at the back as well as the front and makes me want to pick her up and play with her. And she stands on her own? You know that's a big deal, right? Well done.
