Experience

This doll should be named Experience because she has gone through many changes. She sat on a shelf in my workroom for a long time until this week, when I decided to stitch a body covering on her.  I was dissatisfied with the messy paint marks on the body which needed covering up. 


She started as a cloth doll where I experimented with a different paint type.
But I didn't like the slick surface.  


So I added a layer of tube bandaging.  
Then I painted two coats of glue on top of that.  


Then I painted over the glue. 



Now working on a body covering and she should be done soon.

  1. I think she is pretty and old looking, The dress adds oldness to her in color and design.
