An altered doll that I made in a class I took with JoAnna of Moss Hill Studios.  Her face is actually an old plastic doll head that has been altered to look like porcelain.  The body is an old yarn spool and her wings are an old door pull. 

Pattern or design used: My Own Design - Yaya Chique

But, I was so proud of doing something "outside of my art box" with this doll. That I just had to share it!

JoAnna (Moss Hill Studios) is offering her "trade secrets" in her online class. You can join her here:

She is a sweet friend, and her work is awesome!

How do you make the faces look like porcelain? I have a bunch of Santa heads that would be cool to do that to. I have plenty of time so, if it's not a secret, I might do this. Thanks, Georgia Posted: 7:14 pm on February 19th
