These are the first shots of a bride doll I am mailing in to Art Doll Quarterly.

Silk interlock over original hand modeled paper clay bust. Hand rooted (strand by strand) thread hair. Very old silk lace gown. Hand made roses with vintage silk flowers and leaves. Hand painted watercolor & archival ink face. She's 19 inches. And will either sit or stand with the aid of a custom made doll stand, included.

Here's a 10 inch 'hanging doll' ornament I completed for the Art Dolls Only November Challenge.
She's a cloth body with a silk over clay hand painted  face with Lincoln mohair for her hair and wings you can barely see in this photo.  Various silk velvets and lame` and chiffon, tulle and ribbons make up her costuming.
