Isn't she a doll?
Woo Hoo!!! I am in a doll craze lately of flat ones, fluffy ones, with joints, with or without limbs, they are all wonderful to me! I also just finished my first dottee, an icicle doll. I found it was hard to photograph red, but did a better job today to upload. I had these cool polymer clay shoes and couldn't resist adding to them. Don't you just love her knobby knees? She can dance all day! Now for a name. Scarlet or Garnet come to mind! The mermaid is another in the Out of the blue theme. The requirement.... recycled plastic was actually a Meow Mix container that I made the crown and starfish from. The plastic net from a produce bag. The requirement of something round to use.... well I guess you can see that! lol They were plastic buttons painted. In fact I ended up painting the whole skin tone so that it would be uniform. The fabrics are a knit fabric. I painted her fish tail with Pebeo set-a-color macre'. I fused on crystals with my heat setting tool and it left circle impressions, gasp! It worked to my advantage and I made slightly burnt in impressions of scallops!
