Lullabye League Body Parts Completed Today!
Today I got some time in to sand and paint the arms and legs of these tiny dolls. I painted them with Hannie Sarris paints...this gives such a beautiful finish....I do love the easy coverage this paint gives. I then sprayed the parts with Duncan super matte spray. It goes on shiny...but dries to a beautiful soft matte finish.
I sewed up two tiny bodies using a very easy pattern I created to fit perfectly into the paperclay upper bodice that I sculpt for these dolls...I Hollow the center of the bodice out, leaving a short armature wire that goes into a small opening at the top of the fabric body.
