Art Is Fox Doll Workshop Done!!

Fox Dolly
Oh my gosh...so much pressure is lifted!!! ugh....I hate deadlines....I'm always "just making them"!!@!

Anyway.. the fox doll is complete... I end up really loving her.  For a while...she was being a "Brat" and not getting a personality...but she finally came "out".....

Add caption

She is about 8 inches and she has a sculpted Head, bodice, jointed upper arms, lower legs and tail. Her body and upper legs are a two way stretch bodysuit that I sew up on the machine.  This bodysuit fits over the wire armature with all paper clay pieces attached...and then lightly stuffed.

She is an animal dolly with human qualities....(because I believe animals have special qualities that help us see them as human. )  I chose a Fox because I want my Tale to be one of  decadence dripping with diamonds, luscious with leopard printed  leather and fur, daring with red shiny boots...and some Mysterious with an old frozen Charlotte in hand! This  Charlotte is actually a "fake out" from a tiny two part mold my friend Sue Milo made for me!  Lucky Me!!! I can now have a frozen Charlotte anytime I want! ha ha  and embellish and age it however I want. Life is truly amazing!

I adore the dolls you have created.
I have been in the Cloth and Clay doll ning since the fall of 2008, and the membership is still going strong. It is always grand to find more doll making blogs, and yours looks fantastic!
