Doll face

Well, she's a bit lumpy and bumpy...I took this a few hours ago, now she is dressed, but I may wait to photograph again until she is placed in the window. I have one hat and about 6 bats to go to finish the materials. Eva, if you read this, I have a feeling she's supposed to look a bit smoother...possibly impatience on my part.
Edit: replaced the original photo with a closeup of the dressed doll.

smoother... well, it can be done by filling gaps and holes with paper clay and put another layer of thin glued paper on top to secure the paper clay parts, or they might drop out after drying. I recommend to brush some glue onto the surface before using the paper clay.

Thanks, Eva. I was doing coat after coat of gesso and sanding down and not getting anywhere...

I like her rough charm. She has a touch of a gaucho in appearance.

the long awaited doll..

I just learned about smoothing.. too late, mine are lumpy and that's a desgin feature, I figure.

I always read your postings, dear. --
Maybe it would not suit the somewhat stern expression if she was too smooth. There is something startling masculine about her; I guess it will be a thrilling contrast to the corsetted body and wide hips. The dress is excellent!

Love her! Especially that knowing left eye (her right) and the eyebrow angle. And the Spanish hat.
Certainly the sort of woman to have a pet spider, methinks.

Wallace Simpson is leaping to my mind, but I think it may be the previous "lumpy" comment that's doing that. Apparently Wallace Simpson had a very lumpy/bumpy face.
