Do you remember this face?
After putting the crackle tutorial on my blog I received an email from my mother asking what I was planning to do with this head. Translated= "Moriah, I want this doll!" :)
So, I agreed to make this head into a doll for her as she was coming to visit us here in Florida soon.
So, I got busy working on it, a little here and a little there. Then I decided to make a second doll for her as well so I sculpted up another smaller head and gave it a body.
When my mom arrived in Florida, neither doll was finished. Sigh... But I promised her that they would be done before she left. She gave me input about what kind of dresses she wanted and which fabrics she wanted. She also chose their hair color and styles.
I had so much fun working on these dolls! They're bigger than I usually make and a totally different style than I usually work in but I LOVE how they turned out and you will definately be seeing more of this style of doll from me in the future.
Without further ado, I present Mary Elizabeth and Annabelle!
Mary Elizabeth is a cloth doll with a paperclay head and stands 18 inches tall.
Annabelle is a cloth doll with a paperclay head and stands 13 inches tall.
