A Doll Done

Or should I say a prototype. This is doll 1 of 4, finished last night. She's made of inexpensive muslin (she is a prototype, after all), and I like the subtle give of the fabric. Her face, bust, and arms have about six coats of Messy Mix, then a couple coats of gesso, then skin tone acrylic paint. I wish I were more skilled at painting hair.

She's lovely...when you finish them all, will you make a comparison? I'm interested in the evolution of patterns. It fascinates me how subtle changes can become evident.

You really amaze me with the patience you have....that's, uh, TEN coats of stuff? Wow. Of course, she's stunning. I love her hair! It looks antique.
