Izannah Walker Inspired Doll~OOAK~SOLD

This is my first Izannah Walker style doll after taking an online class with Dixie Redmond. I had fun sculpting her face with paper clay and then covering it up with stockinet fabric. She was a challenge and a learning experience for me. I'll be making more. :o) Ella is now living in auctions

Folk Art Queen of Hearts Doll~Paper Clay Head~OOAk~SOLD

This sweet doll was made of muslin fabric with hand sculpted head and chest plate. The body was designed by Jane Derosier (Gritty Jane) and was so much fun to put together! I thought she looked a bit like Naomi Judd so her name is Naomi. :o) She has painted top, stocking and shoes. Her skirt was coffee stained and baked to give it a good ole prim look. I sculpted her hair to look like a heart surrounding her face. The locks of hair also form another small heart on her chest. :o) This little gal has now moved to California along with a couple of the other dolls. :o) my auctions

Folk Art Antique looking boy doll~OOAK~SOLD

I'm hooked on working with paper clay. Here is my second attempt to make an antique style doll. Thought I'd make a boy this time. He's wears a velour suit which looks like the ones boys wore in the 1800's. He has a paper clay head and shoulder plate. Painted him with acrylics and gave him a bit of crackling for that aged look. Now moved to California with the previous doll and her dollie. :o)

Primitive Folk Art, Antique Style Doll with her little dollie~SOLD

Thought I'd do a little practicing with paper clay before I actually take an online class with Dixie Redmond on making Izannah Walker style dolls. This is what I've come up with. Both dolls are made of muslin with paper clay heads. I painted the heads, arms and legs with acrylics and did a bit of crackling on them. Now moved to auctions
