Dorries Lost At Sea
A sneak peek at 3 dolls I will have in the "Lost At Sea" exhibition next month at Gallery Hanahou. This is the evolution of my prototype doll, they've sprouted hair, scales and tentacles! I'm still working on some final details. I might also make them a presentation box, but I really don't want to go overboard on this project (no pun intended *snort*).
Here are a few eyes and mouth samples I painted last night. Thanks to TADA's vote on painting the faces on vs. embroidering it. I really love how crisp the painted shapes looks and I also have so much more control. In terms of play value paint can withstand more than stitches can.
