I attached that face mask to a cloth doll head embedding it into a base of paperclay. You can see that doll above. I'm making this doll as a gift for my friend and mentor Edyth to paint. I do not intend to sell dolls made from this mold. I found trying to fit the molded mask on was almost as much work as sculpting from scratch. Also, I enjoy sculpting - I like how each sculpt is their own individual person.
The unpainted doll needs a body covering (today!) and then she will go to her new mama to be painted. She will join a family of wonderful antique Izannah and Izannah inspired dolls.
I also have an original sculpt cousin doll I was making at the same time and several other dolls that will be finished. It has been a busy busy season here in my house for other reasons, so I am wedging in creative time when I can. But I also am finding I just have to go down to the workroom sometimes even if I'm not feeling creative.
