GYPSY CHALLENGE DOLL I MADE. Her name is "Jessenia". I needled sculpted her face and hands with nylon stocking. her face features are painted on. Body is wire armature wrapped. Feet/Shoes are sculpted out of Paperclay and pieces of silk fabric with Paverpol brushed on the silk fabric. Her head dress is made of silk and beads. Her dress is made of silk.

IN CELEBRATION OF THE DOLL 2008. I MADE: "Dancine Faith" Her face is sculpted out of Prosculpt clay. Her body is cloth with paper, fancy fibers, etc. mod podged on. There's lots of other techniques used on her. I also teach "Dancine"

These two dolls are at the International Quilt Show in Houston, Texas. All the dolls in the show are WONDERFUL. Check out these pictures: Lots of Eye Candy .
