In the “Show and Tell” section of the Winter issue of Art Doll Quarterly you will find the doll that I created with a gourd. The main body section is a gourd that of course has been cut and cleaned, embellished with a little paper clay and painted with acrylic paints. I added legs with wooden dowels and a Styrofoam egg cut in half was used for the shoes. The egg was covered with paper clay and painted with acrylic paints. The head was created with a Styrofoam ball covered with paper clay & hand sculpted and painted with acrylic paints. The arms were made with a wire armature covered with hand painted muslin fabric and white lace and her hands were made with paper clay. The flowers were made with a fiskars punch and painted with acrylic paints.
