A Doll for Edyth

I made this doll for Edyth, because the head was taken from an antique Izannah Walker doll she once owned. The head for this doll is a purchased composition facsimile of the original Izannah Walker doll.  You can purchase one of three Izannah Walker doll head types from Lymda Hampton of the Little Hamptons.

Usually when I make dolls, I finish them with a final glaze to mute the color and unify the parts.  I will be leaving that part up to Edyth, who has my permission to repaint this particular head and modify it as she wishes.  The dress will not travel with the doll, as I know Edyth has many more appropriate dresses in muted colors. 

Now that I have finished my part of this process as a gift to Edyth, I will return to my own sculpts and dolls.  There's a hint below:

I am so thrilled with her! Thank you, she is so like Patience I once had. I will give this one a new name for herself, she stands as a lovely doll in her own right. Yes I have few little dresses for her to try on. Hugs, e

She is very pretty and I do like her dress. I am sure Edyth is very pleased and happy to get her. What a great gift from you to her.
