The dark doll is made of Papervol, which is a glue like substance which coats all the pieces of fabric which are wrapped over the wire armature. The base is a wooden fence filial covered in a paper towel dipped in Papervol. This is waterproof and is able to be outside but not perhaps in the strong hot sun. I based her on a fashion model uncomfortably balanced on a perch. Her name " On Edge".
This doll is from a challenge based on a package or wrapped gift. She is based on a traditional Christmas cracker. The bottom two layers of her dress can be pulled apart, one end goes over her torso and head, with bows tied on the end, she looks like a very large cracker that you would pull apart to get your party hat. The outer layer of the cracker is gold Christmas fabric and the dress fabric is covered with gold snowflakes. Her hair is needlefelted with gold angelina fibers added for sparkle.
They will be in a doll exhibit at Ron Andrews recreation centre for the month of December starting on the second.
