A Doll for Marti

Marti is a doll friend who has been waiting patiently for a doll. Last year she ordered two Cecelia dolls. One was dressed in yellow, the other in pink. She decided she wanted a third doll made from a medium brown fabric and dressed in green and purple.

This poor doll has been waiting to be made, production being bumped while other dolls took priority. This is the one I've been working on while waiting for paperclay to dry on my boy doll. Last night I did the face sculpting, and today I'll working on the face painting.

I've been searching online to find various purple/green fabrics of appropriate scale. After her face is painted, I need to pull out my two big drawers of doll hair. I may have a little wig that would fit her, or might use some wool locks.

I think dolls look lovely photographed in the hand. It gives a better idea of scale than measurements and it makes them look (and I don't know how else to explain this) both more doll-like and more real; not just a pretty photograph. She looks gorgeous.
