I'm working on a small project that I can't wait to share. Unfortunately, I'm mostly working on it late at night, so I can't get good photographs. In the mean time, I thought I'd share another of the dolls Mom said goodbye to at Sturbridge.
When we first started talking about doing a show, one of the big questions was how to best display the dolls. Mom loves to use accessories to tell a story, so we wanted to be able to suggest the possible setting in a very simple way. We found plain black frames that made a nice display base, and made a variety of floors which we could swap in and out as necessary. For this one, we dry brushed grey paint over an unfinished floor. Simple but effective.
Mom purposely chose a rather robust woman for this doll. Washing is hard work!
