I've been working steadily (assembly-line style) on three commissioned Suffragette Sally dolls, and I've been waiting for a block of several hours so I could gesso, paint, and sew the faces to the stuffed heads. Wait too long, and the paint has set/hardened to the point that it's extremely difficult to get a needle through.
I've only painted one coat of skin-tone acrylic paint to these faces, so I'll be adding a second coat (and maybe mix a slightly darker shade) later today.
All that remains is the facial features, stuffing and jointing the arms and legs, painting the shoes, adding hair, sewing the hats, and making their signs. Sounds like a lot, but the most time-consuming stuff is already done (the dolls are sewn, the dresses, chemises and belts are sewn, the faces are baked, covered with knit fabric, gessoed, painted and sewn to the stuffed heads.
