I am going to the SCBWI children's book conference in WA in April. Iam making a Nikki doll from the character in my book to hang off my purse as a door opener ...meeting people.. editors, agents, publishers, and fellow illustrator/writers..conne
This is my first experience with making fiber hair for a doll ....natural sheep wool from local sheep.
"Rose and Ram" in a little village below my house 4 miles away. No one else had any and I didn't want to wait to order. The owner of Rose and Ram has a farm with sheep!
Time to paint and make the shoes..I also put some clear shinny coat on the eyes and mouth to get the wet look.. Now some more drying over the stove.
Wild hair days for me and Nikki..no makeup..just working hard to finish the doll.
With the Spring coming on it is hard to stay inside but..I am determined to finish this project!
