Frida

I've been trying to rework some of my domino art doll designs. The doll above has had her upper midsection removed and replaced with small metal pellets used in BB Guns. The opening was covered with a piece of mica. The really big change for me was using the photocopy of a face instead of a clay face.
I drive around with my dolls hanging from my rear view mirror, and she was up there the past few days, and my oldest daughter said that she liked my dolls with the dimensional clay faces. I said I did too, but I was going to give the photocopy image a try.
So far, I think her body needs to be a little wider to accommodate that square open space and she could use some length as well.

Just as I was wondering about the little round balls, I read that they were BBs. :) I like her, poor girl, even is she has BBs rattling around inside!

Love the glass enclosed BB's ... .
and, must admit to doing a double take on her face ! It's not a "Carla Face" ... . but, she's charming.

I like the photocopy face. It's good to try a little something different every now and again. :)

The BBs are a fantastic idea. The face is good - but I prefer the more individual clay faces...

Oh I don't know...I like it how it is! I agree with Cotton Picker...it's good to try something new every once in awhile. (Maybe you could incorporate a photocopied face into a clay head....)

Thanks jenclair!

Judith, it will take some getting use to!

Cotton Picker - This is the year for that!

Renate - Clay faces are my fave as well!

Dave - That would be a cool thing to try. Thanks!
