Painting the Roses Red

This doll was made for CNYDAG’s 2007 challenge, in which participants could make a doll out of black, white, and one other color only.

Three favorite literary characters immediately came to mind: Two, Five and Seven, those obsequious landscapers from the queen’s croquet ground in Alice’s Adventures Underground .  
The head, hands and feet are sculpted from Fimo and Sculpey. The doll’s eyes are onyx and hair is marabou.  Shoes are leather. He’s built on a poseable wire and wood armature with a felted body made of Romney roving, covered in stretch fabric.  The card is made of paisley quilting fabric, satin
and beaded embellisments.
