The paint on Cherish is barely dry, and I am working on her first sister. I am determined to make a Queen Anne reproduction doll that could pass as an antique. I think I have the carving down--but the painting, not so much. These dolls had various skin tones, from warm white (Cherish) to peach to warm ivory (Delphine). I think part of the problem is that most of them have red lips--and I do NOT like red! I don't even have any red paint in my huge paint bin! So in order to continue, I think I will have to break down and get some red paint.
Delphine will be about 16" tall, the same as Cherish. I will do one more this size, and then I want to try a bigger one--20" to 28" or so.
No clothes yet, I ordered some silk brocade for gowns, and it hasn't arrived yet--so, carve on!
