She now has hair. I wigged her using Tibetan lambs wool that my friend Colleen gave me. It was from her stash of raw wool that she washed 1,000 times after she purchased it. I am very happy how she turned out! This doll was taught to me by Lillian Alberti. If you ever get a chance, take one of her classes! She is a wonderful teacher, artist and person!
Wise Queen is 95% complete. I am thinking she needs a small pair of earrings and matching necklace and I still need to paint her arms, which are still the raw muslin material. I also made a tag that will hang from her belt with a key. The tag is sort of her Title...telling her story. She is an old queen, wise and wonderful. She is "letting down her hair" as she is tired and ready to let go of the responsibilities of being Queen. That is why her hair is wild and not properly made into a bun. Her crown is in her hands. Is this her Youth Crown or her Wise Crown?
