Between the wood dolls and the gourd dolls, I've been busy.
On some earlier post, I'd mentioned finding a monster stash of doll eyes at the thrift shop. Then there were all these gourds laying around, waiting to be turned into something interesting. Besides, I want to submit a gourd art doll to Art Doll Quarterly's gourd challenge. I have gourd dolls already made, but decided to make something for the occasion.
Sooooo.... I gave them eyes. And have sculpted faces. Oh boy have I been having fun sculpting faces!
The end result is a sort of cross between nature totems and spirit dolls. Although I must admit having the silly things all lined up and staring at me was a bit unnerving at first. It's better now they have faces.
Some WIP photos... (don't be scared. They'll get painted later.)
One of them looks a little like Peter Lorre, doesn't he?
