This is my first carved doll Elmire. She went through numerous of changes to get her to the finished stage. So many time I was tempted to throw her away but I kept on carving her. I know I did her two sets of hands. She turn out to be a great doll. The pictures don't do her justice. She looks so much better in person.
Since I love 18th century fashion. . . . I used vintage linens for her clothing and hand spun wool yard for her hair. Oh and her hat is so adorable!!! Dont you just love it!
I like how pretty her face turned out after the wax rub. It gave her a patina.
Making shoes for a wood doll
came out pretty good! Practice make prefects as they say!
She wears a ruby ring on her hand. . .
I even made her a pocket.
