Cordelia paper doll

 Ta daaaaaa:There's a great doll event from MRSBO coming this January, on the 31th.
Hhmmm... What is MRSBO? you might ask yourself suspiciously... Well, it is a group that I have been mentioning many times by now if you were really paying attention! (excuse me, that was for my cat, who was only pretending to read here) No, they won't have any tuna either.

And what's the event about?
Well, Mr. Pringle's Society of Feeble Prestidigitators is sponsoring a fund-raiser for the little MRSBO orphan dolls. All members have attempted to conjure up a doll to be sold for charity, but there is something very odd about every one of them!

You have to search MRSBO that day to see what each artist of our group came up with!
Want to take a pick at what I will be presenting for auction?
This is Cordelia.

She heard something about The Orphanage having some dolls, and she took the long walk to go there and get herself one.

You'll have to excuse us here. Cordelia is still bald, undressed and doll-less, but we are working on those matters.

Do you want to learn to make a clay doll? I have an online class HERE

My first finished clay doll back in 2007

I want to share with you something. As shown in the original post HERE, Lavender was my first doll finished. I made many other doll parts until I more or less got it, and I was so happy that I made a video too, which was also a lot of fun. This little doll lives in Germany. I was part of a group for misbehaving orphaned dolls called Mrs. Blathersby. I understand they closed down her business because she was misbehaving herself...? ;oP

Lavender's Story

First it was just clay and aluminum foil:
 Then a funny shape:

Then a humanoind form, painted with acrylics:

All the parts attached:

Some details of the boney knees and feet:
