Felt and Paper Mache

Once upon a time I did quite a bit of paper mache. It is funny how you come full circle and
find a new interpretation of a past technique. This is a sneak peak of a new series of mixed media dolls. I am relly enjoying adding a hard element to the dolls, as well as painting on a different surface for the faces.
If you have time I would be pleased to hear what you think!
Best wishes - I hope everyone has had a super weekend
Love Elizabeth

  8. Hi Elizabeth
    Love the new look of your blog. And your new doll is stunning. The paper mache face on this doll looks fabulous with your felting. Love the doll's face too.
    How many weeks until the July class? (not that I am counting or anything he heh).
    Still dreaming in color:)
    P.S I am sure paper mache is lots of fun too.
