Comments on dollmaking: To me dollmaking is several things: 1-a lost art form. 2- therapy for the soul 3-vehicle of self expression as well as one's perception of the world. I teach dollmaking and still consider myself a student. Doll Artistry has so many options that I don't think I could ever become bored with it. To me it is a gift from God.
The doll Big Mama is composed of a blend of Cernit and Fimo.
The body has a wire armature in it and the legs have real
stockings on them The body is made of 100% Cotton Knit. She
is 26" standing. She is poseable. Her hair is made from grey
kid mohair from a goat from Oregon.
