Cassie and I want to pass on huge well wishes for the new year to everyone out there in cyberspace!

A big thank you from the bottom of my heart to all of our dolly friends that peek in and have followed our happenings through the past year.

Bella ~ Paperclay art doll (SOLD)

Introducing my newest creation, Bella

Bella is 14inches (36cm) lovingly sculpted from paper clay. Her face and body have been painted with quality acrylics and protected with a matte sealer.

 

This very special girl is made in the style of the Catrina doll. These dolls are very popular in Mexico around the celebration of Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), a holiday on November 2nd that focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died.

 

I have taken all the best parts from a 150 year old antique christening gown for the use of designing and making Bella's gown. For finishing, the gown has been lightly coffee stained. Due to the age of the fabric used there are tiny imperfections in it such as small pin holes or handsewn repairs from mending over time, adding to it's character.

 

The gown is tied on with a satin ribbon and is removable. Shoes are sculpted and not removable.

Hair is made of Tibetan lambs wool(not removable) and tied up with a ribbon which can be undone to let loose. I have made a tiny hair pin for her to finish off the updo

Bella's eyes are resin and also made by me.

I have signed and dated on her hip.

 

This doll sits well on her own, she has ribbon tied legs for basic posing. Her head, shoulders and elbows are elastic tied for more posing options.

She does not stand on her own. I have used a saddle stand for taking her pictures.

 

Bella is the first in a series of dolls I plan to make in this style, each of course will be a one of a kind doll. This doll and her gown will not be reproduced.

I call them Viaje dolls meaning "journey" celebrating the circle of life.

Each outfit made from the fabric once used to celebrate birth with faces painted in the style traditionally celebratingDia de los Muertos
