Little Dolls and Little Finishes

Sunday, November 10, 2013

 These ladies have been waiting a very long time to get their skirts.  But don't they look so happy now?  They were left in painted on hot pants for over a year, as I tried to work out how to make them stand up.

The original plan was to hand turn some wooden bead and route out a centre that let each doll stand.  The problem was I haven't touched woodwork since manual training and have no idea where to find a freindly wood turner.  In the end, it was air dry clay to the rescue with hand molded bases holding each lady.  They look just about ready to start singing

  1. They are gorgeous, and that's a great idea to use air dry clay. A peg doll nativity set is beginning to form in my mind....

    2. I've been thinking the same. Little angels suspended from nylon, Mary and the rest of the team. The peg doll camel has me stumped though.


Your comments make my day. I would love to hear from you.
