A Quick Update

I'm working diligently on the composition doll I recently acquired off EBay, you can see I've striped all the finished off her head except at the neck. Notice all the exposure cracks have revealed a different pattern on the wood pulp itself. Tonight (Saturday) I have had to wait on further finishing this doll because it will take quite some time for the wood putty to cure.

I'm also at the point where I need to really think about how to paint the head while having the clothing attached to the body, lots of straight pins, tape and ace bandages, I think. While the clothing look as if to be stapled I'll removed them to replace it with a strong glue.
Keep watching. C&G Design

Oh so interesting!

Love your family pics on previous posts. Good MOM! You found the the "unfindable"! We had at times looked in several cities on my husband's travels, and enlisted my sister in New Orleans, for the White Tigerzord. Found it in New Orleans, finally. These are the best shots.
