I started this doll before we left for Brasilia, and after the trip in my luggage I realized that there are still some things I need to work on with my dollmaking. I finally feel like I know what I’m doing with the faces, I loved creating this doll and she was inspired by a wonderful print I bought from The Black Apple.
I’m still learning about how and when to use Gesso, how much stuffing the dolls’ faces need. Even with her cracked face I decided to make some arms and legs and finish off her dress… I couldn’t bear to put her into a box in a dark corner.
So, she’ll sit and remind me of the things I’m still working on, but I think that she’ll be a good Muse, I love all the things that went right with her too.
