Sweet New Doll

I just finished this doll, 
she is reserved on Etsy for someone, 
but I wanted you to see her.
The customer who ordered her
wanted the long red locks she had seen on a previous doll I created.
Her arms and legs have a light wire armature, for positioning.
She is sculpted from paper clay, I have two other dolls in progress,
that have been waiting patiently for make up and ward robe.
I am happy with how she evolved.
But adding the hair, is still something,
I'm working to get better at.
I used synthetic hair (I think)
possibly real human hair,
I can't remember, and I threw away the packaging.
I cut it from a weft,
then used Fabritac glue (I hate that stuff)
to glue lock by lock.
It always globs up, gets dried out, and is stringy.
Anybody use something different,
Let me know,
I'd really appreciate it.

Happy Doll Making
