Hands & Feet
Today I will be in the studio sculpting hands and feet for these new little dolls. I usually don't work on more than one or two dolls at a time but with these I thought it might be nice to have a uniform look to a point and then give them their own little flare of personality through their outfits at the end. I would like for this collection of dolls to be a little more child friendly. It would be nice for children to be able to play with them and hold them where as with the tea cup dolls, they are much more delicate and for decorative use only. I'm still brain storming about all the other details. I'm thinking about using different textures of wool for their hair and I may be spending my afternoon looking for fun fabrics to use for their outfits. I always seem to get carried away with the details which end up being very time consuming (like beading into the fabrics etc...) but I would be very glad to find a way to keep the labor and cost of this collection down so they can be more affordable and desirable for gifts.
