Here is my little pin head




This is her dress before cuffs are added to her sleeves, now to work on her accessories! On her 'second skin' it looks as though she has a line across her chest,  but for some reason its how the dye set on the fabric.

Here is my recent doll, working on her ears, they're pinned, thought i'd give the pins a chance, so far so good! She gets a few more coats of gesso and then her features will come alive!! How do you like the red fabric? I was going to put her in soft butter yellow, but i do love this red!!!!! Also thinking of the name Mardra, what do you think?
Dollie Hugs,
Jackie





I Love when dolls are at this stage, i think we all say this... Here she doesnt have her arms or legs, and no paint... Here, it shows the actual color of her dress, what comes to mind is a prairie rose or somthing like that, ah a wild flower...: D
