Wooden Doll Update

A while ago I started a doll with a wooden head that is inspired by my banner above. I used some porch finials and furniture legs together to make the head and shoulders. Then I added paperclay and baked it all in the oven to harden it. I wasn't sure what to do with it after I painted it. A cloth body was very hard to figure out how to attach to the wooden shoulders. On Monday I was cruising through The Schoolhouse Antique Mall in Brewer, Maine. When I found a great antique rolling pin that had lost its handles I knew it would be a perfect base for Miss Wood.

I need to decide what direction to go in now. I could make her into a traditional doll - maybe an angel - or I could go an altered art route. Altered art is somewhat new for me.
