Big Papier Mache Girl - Antique Unbreakable shoulderhead

I've been working on this girl since January...

A while ago, I got this papier mache head
from a doll collecting friend.
She had been repainted.
I decided to try repainting her myself.

This was one of the first repaints.

I didn't like her worried look,
so I gessoed over her again.

And here is where she has ended up after several tries.

I've decided to stop and call this done.
There are many things I could improve on,
but I might lose some of the things I like
about her at this stage.

On the right is her friend that I bought
from Ruby Lane to repaint.
Now on to the bodies!

"Do not let what you cannot do
keep you from doing what you can do."
