Rose...a Lost Soul in Progress



Rose will be about 7 inches...I have Sculpted her head , bodice , upper and lower arms and lower legs...her body will be a simple torso bodysuit with upper legs that has a two way stretch....it pulls easily over her wire armature....then lightly stuffed for a this soft torso.
I thought she might have ANTLERS.  BUT AS SHE PROGRESSES...ITS JUST NOT HER!
She is coming along and she is telling me she needs Roses ...a Rose color ...?!?  What?..
So... after I started dressing her and getting ideas I wanted to touch up one eyebrow ...went  to squirt a little the brown paint ...ugh..  SPLATTERED all over the doll, her hair and the tile. I was able to wash her hair successfully but now she has fine pretty freckles that were not in the plan!!!  But now I love them  ...also made me  rethink her hair into braids...

Instead of just painting her shoes...I went for a little more dimension. I used Half Cilla air dry in this vtiny mold because it has nice tiny intricate designs that are quite shallow...it allowed me to create a fine design on the foot with out adding bulk because I want teeny feet..... 
I also started to create tiny roses. Ill paint then along with her shoes...use some rub ons and maybe triple thick
So. Now she has a Scrunched up vintage sheers hanky as  a dress .  It was peach but I dyed it with distress stains and Silks paint.  Just finished sewing her rose jacket...but now it needs a ruffle and buttons I think....she needs last steps of embellishment and a special WAND ...
