Posts Tagged ‘Twig doll’

A couple more twig dolls finished.   The next challenge is some decent photos of all of these – at the moment it is mid-winter,  I seem to think about taking photos at the end of the day and that is death to decent lighting.   And I think they need to be named,  I feel kind of sad that they are anonymous, though I guess we all are to a greater or smaller extent to the wider world.   Come my beauties and be loved…….

I was given a doll made with twigs, some paper mache and printed fabric.   It is quirky and fun.   And I had a ‘hmmmmm’ moment.   Plus we were gathering autumn twigs for the fire and it just seemed to all come together.

I then made some fimo faces (from a Sculpey mould) and painted them.  The wondrous thing about making these dolls is that you can use the smallest pieces of fabric.  And that’s a great thing when one has a mountain of small pieces of fabric!   I wanted to use beautiful fabric – so far the dolls have been made with pieces of silk, sari silk, dmc threads, a variety of ribbons and of course I just couldn’t help myself – a wee bit of beading.   Coming together nicely I think.
