Garden Fairie finished

The Garden Fairie Doll finished.
She is now on her way to my friend Willow out in California.
The bottom picture is of the back side so you could see the hair.Her hair is very full and so I added a head band to hold it down a bit.Other wise she looked more like a troll,hahaha.She isn't the prettiest thing but she turned out how she turned out.I learned alot from making this doll and I really have to commend those of you who do make ( hand made ) dolls to sell.

Garden Fairy hair and wings

This is just another update on the doll I have been making.She is done now and I still have to get pictures of her finished.But I have been very busy.I made her hair out of a piece of cording that I bought in the fabric department.I had tryed several different ways to make her hair but I didn't like any of them.What I did was to put some tape arond the cord and then cut it in two inch lengths,leaving a little (1/4") next to the tape side.Then on that side I added E-6000 glue and let it dry.Then I removed the tape and unraveled the cording.Then I glued the hair on to the doll head with some more E-6000 till the head was completely covered.Now the wings were made of coarse from the coffee can foil.The pices I used to rub over were a pair of earrings I had found at Wall Mart.I taped them together and the layed the foil over them and rubbed till the patern showed up.Then I turned em over and befor I add the E-6000 glue to the back I colored the inside with the two markers,then filled with the glue to keep the shape and the color showed through.Then when the glue was dry I cut out the wing shape and colored the other side shown in the picture here.
