Made by Linda Crawford
My first real attempt at a folk art doll. She stands about 38 cm tall. Created using paper mache balloon for the body covered in my own paper pulp clay. The upper arms and legs are made from the same paper pulp and head and lower arms from air dry clay. Here clothing is fabric mache made from an old sheet and painted as are the flowers. Her hair and gardening bucket are made from paper pulp, hedgehog is air dry clay and tools are air dry clay and wooden sticks. I took inspiration from images I have seen on line and techniques from you Jonni. I had an idea in my head and she sort of evolved as I went along. I didn’t use any patterns, just went with the flow!
