My little Emily, with a bit of a mischievous personality is the newest addition to the “Silent Soul” girls.
Emily’s head, chest plate, hands and lower legs are sculpted from paper clay. After the sculpting the parts are layered in 4 coats of a flesh tone acrylic paint, then they are carefully detailed with watercolor paints and pastels before finally getting several coats of a clear top coat for protection.
All of these parts are eventually attached to her soft body which is also wired and weighted allowing movement and a stable sit.
The neck and head also move on a ball joint adding personality.
The clothes are designed right on the doll body and are not removable. Each piece is meticulously stitched either by hand or machine.
Emily’s wig is made of Angora Goat fibers with each part being attached separately and then set on rollers for her curly tousled look.
The hours and love that go into these dolls is extensive, taking me about 2 weeks of 10 hour days to finish.
Emily stands about 23 inches or 59cm tall. She does not stand on her own.
All of my Silent Soul dolls are registered with the International Art Doll Registry so they each have unique identification numbers.
Although paper clay is quite durable and will not break under normal circumstances, this doll is considered a piece of art and not recommended as a child’s toy.
Emily comes with a doll stand, her artist’s COA tag, and IADR registration COA.
