For Edyth

Edyth, a great doll friend and lover of early things, has been a mentor to me in the antique doll department. It's funny how someone that you've never met can impact your life. She asked that I take pictures of the wax over mache dolls while I was at the Strong Museum. They have them listed as "wax over composition". I also took a ton of papier mache doll pictures, which I will edit and post later. Double click on the pictures to see a larger view.

Seeing these dolls makes me think I'd like to try putting a layer of wax over one of my own dolls. It gives a sense of depth and translucence which is beautiful.

keep you from doing what you can do."
