My latest underachievement is the black witch. Try as I might, I just couldn't make her sinister enough and she wasn't quite pretty enough to be saved for other reasons. Think "Good Girl Gone Bad". So, it is with a heavy heart that I show you these photos and begin the process of deconstructing her.
I'm thinking that my next attempt might not even be a cloth doll. When I make these dolls I cut out their bodies from fabric, stuff them, wire them, needle sculpt them, make their clothes, embellish them, give them hair and paint them. It's a lot of work and quite often I have no idea how a doll will turn out till she's nearly finished.
I've gotten interested in clay dolls lately and I think that might be the route I'll take. At least with clay you can see how you are progressing and make changes along the way. Maybe I should take a class first. I'm forever starting something I have no business doing because I don't know the first thing about it. But, hey. That's how I started out with the dolls. I think I'm coming along nicely even though I know I have a long way to go.
Until the next time I want to wish everyone a Happy Easter. Have a great weekend.
