Almost there...

Today I was able to work more on my Izannah dolls. Both dolls have the same coloring, and look as though they could be sisters. Doll Number 1 has fabric ears applied after the knit cloth-over was done. I don't know why this thumbnail looks so stretched out.

Here are the two of them together, with arms pinned in place. Before attaching the arms, I'll need to sew the "second skin" which is a sort of body covering that makes everything tidy. I've selected some dress fabrics from my stash and painted boots to match.

Doll Number 2 has paperclay sculpted ears and a cloth-over. Her features are a little finer than my first attempt above.

I'll be applying an antique wash, which will have to happen prior to adding the second skin and arms.

This Izannah-inspired doll was created in Dixie Redmond's online Izannah Workshop. Visit the blog for the details HERE.

Oh my, could they BE any more beautiful? Just lovely Deanna. And up to your usual standard of perfection, even if you don't agree. I long to wrap my hands around one of them.

What can I say that hasn't been said? Oh, yeah! Send the one in the last picture to me. ;-) Beautiful work, Deanna. It has all the hallmarks of your work and the Izannah quotes as well. A perfect mixture.
