4 little plasticine bodies and two paint tube heads!
I've been wanting to try paper mache for a while now but finding the time and space was difficult. When my ADO group decided that this months challenge was to make a doll from materials you are unfamiliar with I thought right this is just the push I need to make time, clear the table and start my experiment with paper mache. I think the last time I paper mached properly was as at primary school.Fortunately what I learned there all those years ago had not been forgotten!
The paint tube dolls was an idea i saw in an old copy of Cloth Paper Scissors..and if you know you would know that I find it very hard to throw anything out as everything has so much possibility to be re-cycled!

Now these dolls are a little something special I bought the pattern from my friend Little Dirt Lane...I needed some cute therapy, lets just say I've been to the dentist way to many times this year...I needed to take my mind off the yuckiness of it all and making these little dolls was just perfect. Jess has kindly let me sell them too and if you are at the Eastside Makers Market on the 5th December you will see these little girls decorating my whimsical Xmas tree!
