This Izannah Update Has Been Brought to You By...

Well, she looks a little worried. I suppose baking in the oven 5 times for 3 hour stints at 200 degrees might do that to you. I like to do a rough drawing on the paperclay before I gesso the shoulderplate area. This gives me a sense of what I'm hoping for, but then I can cover it up if it's horrible. The eyebrows need to be redone. They're tricky things because one little directional change can change the whole expression of the doll, even if you leave everything else the same. To see what I mean, cover the right side of her face with your finger and the left side looks attentive. Cover the left side and the right side looks scared. We just can't have our little Izzy coming into this world scared.
