One Down, One more to go

Here she is, painted and ready to go in the mail. This is the last doll I have to work on in this exchange for a while. The person who mails to me hasn't started on the one in her possession yet, so I am all caught up.

I had SO much fun with this Round Robin doll. I love the concept and I can't wait to get started on a similar one of my own. I found the torso I wanted... Unfortunately it doesn't have a head so I'll either have to sew one up or sculpt one before I can get started.

I'm also thinking I'd like a quieter color scheme. I like the "wine country" look of these colors, but I have used them before and I'm ready to try something new. I have a tube of paint in "Champagne Gold" that is calling to me. It's a much more muted shade of gold that will let other colors play along without being SUCH a presence.

This little (LITTLE!) head came to me in a swap on my Fantasy Fins and Fairies group. It will be my job to make a body for it, finish it and then send it back to its creator. My original reaction to the face was "female", but looking at this photo, now I'm not so sure. I'll have to think about this one some more.

What do you think... a "Pan" character perhaps?

Oh, dear! You make me want to run & get out my new jars of Apoxie Sculpt! LOL! I wish I could see this doll in her completed state. She looks awesome NOW thanks to your additions! I think you showed great restraint in not FINISHING her! And I DO want to see what you do with that darling little head! To ME it appears to be a male, but these things have a way of deciding for themselves, don't they?

Love the way your RRdoll looks, the apoxy sculpt really adds to the lok of her, someone will be very happy.

Oh how lovely. You certainly gave her a beautiful skirt.
That is a cute little head. I guess once you start painting it it will tell you whether it is a boy or a girl.

The head is definitely male. I thought imp when I first saw him. And I really like what you've done to your blog. For a second I thought I was on the wrong page, but I like the color scheme. It makes your photos stand out more.
