Painted Art dolls

This week I decided I would combine my love of dollmaking and painting and here is the result ... a painted art doll! I learned a few things ... the hard way, like sew and stuff the doll before you paint it or you can't turn out the cool curly bit on the end of the hat *sigh*. Never mind ... I'm really happy with the results, and my kids have given great ideas for some other designs. I will have some of these for sale in my HelloDollies shop soon, and possibly patterns after I've taught it at the FDAA convention (that's forward thinking and confidence all rolled into one!!! LOL).

Hi Dawn
Your doll has come along way since your sketch! Very cool indeed, and I am sure the curly wurly bit of the hat will turn out curlier and wurlier next time around! She looks fab, and I am sure that your dolls will sell really well in your shop.
Very groovalicious!!!!!
