Doll No. 347
2006 to 3/2009
|Henrietta Jane, started in 2006 and finished in 2009!
Progress photos of this doll have been uploaded to my picturetrail site
- see the "Salvage Doll" album. She began as a new design (prototype for my
Hoffman 2006 doll "Carlie") but her body was too small for her head and her face
had a blow-out so I set her aside. Now she's had a complete makeover. She's made of craft
velour and muslin. Her velour head was mended with paperclay, then painted with a mixture
of acrylic gel medium and modeling paste and covered with knit fabric. The pattern for
Carlie morphed into Verity, so she has many of Verity's features.
