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.
