Alice or Malice?

Some one suggested to me that I should do an Alice in Wonderland (which everyone who reads this blog knows I LOVE) and so I happily obliged! Here she is! She's 19" tall x 4 1/2" wide x 3" deep.
Her legs are jointed, and posable. Her right arm is made from a vintage skeleton key. Her left arm is made from a small glass vile that has a slip of paper in it that says Drink Me, a metal found object and a blue teacup I made from apoxy. The base of her hat is a vintage watch piece, a silver colored faux watch face, along with the vintage parts on the hat, a tiny key on the back, and a lock. Her chest has a vintage pocket watch piece that says AWW.CO in beautiful script. You can still see the tiny rubies. I added a small gold rabbit (what would Alice be without her rabbit?) and there is a tiny monocle over his eye! Her right eye is an enameled Victorian looking vintage watch face. Her clothes are hand stitched and not removable. I hand painted (her corset is also painted on) her in layers and sealed her with a matte finish. Her red lips and the red heart are not as bright red as they appear in the photos.
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!! I'm off to play in more clay...xoxo

She's beautiful:) You did a wonderful job sculpting her face.

oh wow my fren! you can make jointed dolls now? that is awesome!! are you using ball joints? you know, you should make a master doll and make a cast out of all the limbs and torso, balljoints and all, then you can recreate your dolls without having to sculpt each and everyone of them. you just change their costumes and faces.

What great dolls. Each one is fabulous. The things you use to capture your imagination and leave me with a big wow.

Thank you Dawn!

Hi Luthien, they are not ball jointed, I've jointed them with rings. I don't mind sculpting them individually, because of all the pieces that I change on them or make for them. But it's an interesting idea for certain parts of them for sure!

Thank you Jean!!
