Delia, a new/old Izannah Walker doll
I have to thank my friend Martha for inspiring me to use lamb skin for her hair. Scary, because it's expensive and hard to cut into. I used a cloth template to get the shaping right, but still...scary. Delia is 21" tall, has big feet and a sad countenance. Her complexion was my effort to replicate how some of the really worn Izannahs have suffered under poor storage and care, so that their paint has cracked and the paste come off in places. I like this one a lot. I'm thinking she should wear the deep red wool for her dress.
