Wise Woman

This is one of my Wise Women dolls. I swapped this one. My wise women all have kindof ugly old clay faces made from polymer or kiln fired clay. This one is a kiln fired clay head painted with acrylics. I always either make holes in or stems on the clay heads so they can be sewn or tied on. I rarely use glue on my dolls, and then only in conjunction with stitching, tying, or tacking.

This gal was created using fabric, yarns, fibers, and thread wrapped onto, you guessed it, a stick. Embellished with beads, gourd seeds, and tiny acorn boobies. These are a lot of fun to make.

Ugly face? I think not! She is a wise woman and her face reflects that.
