I wasn't planning to make a doll this week. And, this isn't the doll I thought I would make. I was playing around with the clay - with another figure in the back of my mind - when this quirky little face developed. She looked so miserable. An orange dress with a lacy skirt and a yellow hair ribbon perked her up a quite bit. Now she just looks kind of dismayed.
I used sticks for her arms and legs. My choice of sticks is very diminished at the moment, but I did the best I could. The awkwardness has some appeal, but another time I would make some adjustments. As I see her hanging on the wall now she reminds me of a rag doll, which leads me to image her with sewn and stuffed arms and legs. I could try that while I wait for new sticks!
