Another doll with copper hair.

This is a head with copper hair that I made about 6 years ago. I stuck it on a chop stick and it just lived in my cup of pens. Then I made those white heads and thought I might do something with this one as well. I made an air-dry clay "vest" to attach arms. How to dress her was a real challenge.


I had been making cloth beads and decided to make a bead to wrap around her neck directly on the chop stick.



Next conundrum...how to make "sleeves". I decided to poke a hole in her "coat, stick the arms with cloth beads slipped on through the holes and right into the vest of clay. I used Elmer's to get the sticks to stay in the holes in the clay. I also used a piece of wool batting to make a body to fill out the coat.




Her she is with her sleeves and coat in place. I am calling her the Sorceress 

Back of her coat with couched silk sari yarn, beads and the "rope" stitched over.


On her wooden stand
