For me, the application of raw umber as a base coat
always seems to breathe "life" into a doll.
I designed some wooden wings, to which I applied
scrapbooking papers; with a vintage flair.
The wings will actually be attached to the upper
body with a wooden dowel that will "pierce" the fabric
along the back of the doll, running from wing-to-wing.
This guy will carry a bunting pennant that I made using
heavy tag board, script from a 1915 German Science Reader,
metal eyelets and then three hammered copper letters that spell: "joy"
Here's a detail of one of the triangles:
No... now the really fun part starts:
Applying the top coat to his head, hands and feet... then
working on his body; ideas are spilling over in my silly head!
Thanks for taking a peek.
Hmmm... there may be some "big news" on the horizon!
