learning to paint on fabric & experimenting with faces. Whoops! found out the dry time is about an hour, otherwise there’s lots of bleeding.

    I love the start of your dolls. I haven’t made dolls in years, and they were very primitive. Please continue to post about your progress, and Karl, too.

    1. Thanks Janice 🙂 Doll making is a challenge. I have a very specific idea for how I want them to look. Hopefully I’ll get close to it. I’ll definitely keep posting updates. I realized recently that I should use my blog more instead of facebook bc fb is so unsearchable.

    Thank you! I love to read doll makers comments or anything about making their dolls! I want to make beautiful dolls so bad but between a hand that stays numb and no talent or creativity I am afraid it is not going to happen. But still..I keep on trying to learn from all of you expert doll makers!!
