Experiment with Cloth/Clay Art Doll

Yes, I have said in the past that I am not much a stuff doll kind of girl. I'm always open to different things!
A  few years back I took an on-line with Jane DesRosier and she taught how to make a cloth/clay doll. I really enjoyed the class! She is a really great teacher and very generous with her information.
 Anyway, last year I did a project with my kids creating a cloth/clay doll. Well, my oldest grew tired of the doll she made and gave it back to me and I painted her white and gave her a face. I like her all white except her head. I've been staring at her a while to get a feel for what direction I am going to take with this.

Hey, I can see all sorts of possibilities with this one. It is fun to try different approaches to our art making. I am going to try some different things this year myself. I don't like stuffing either so, I opt for a wrapped armature version.

Can't wait to see where you go with this. The all white approach is very interesting.

I know I'm not the NORM, I've always known. I find stuffing really relaxing, just watching a movie, relaxing, no real difficulty or skill, just time. I find it therapeutic. I know "weird"
