I've just started working on the Art Doll Quarterly
newest challenge: a historical medieval figure.
I'm keeping my figure cloaked in a bit of mystery for a while…
dropping subtle clues, during the creative process.
Here she is (first clue: "she") with an Osnaburg and fiberfill
body armature, 12 gauge coated wire legs, and articulated arms.
Her head and hands are paper clay.
Fitting this fine lady with a historically correct 12th century
(second clue) wardrobe is going to prove "challenging" at best!
I dislike sewing "doll clothes" more than you can begin to imagine!
Next… the sleeves, a "wimple" and "Gorget" (head-coverings)
and a pair of medieval shoes (first I need to sculpt her feet!)
Thank you for stopping by… have a wonderful new week! Daryle
