Art Is Fox Doll Workshop Done!!
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".....
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!
