winter doll

The beginnings of a doll. ODACT is taking over the front window of a Westport store for the holidays, I need something large to contribute. This head, an experiment in sculpy over apoxy, has been kicking around the studio for a year, too heavy for the cloth body it was intended for. The new body is a 2 foot core of chicken wire under newspapermache.

As usual with my dolls, she is evolving between other projects, one step at a time without an overall plan. Next I'll probably add layers of batting and felt to the torso and arms before finishing with an air-dry clay. Costuming will be fun at this scale. I was expecting her to be the Snow Queen, but not sure she's going to comply.
