Victoria - Paperclay and Cloth Doll

I have finished Victoria, a 10.5 inch paperclay over cloth doll. Her face and hands are hand sculpted in paperclay, and her body is a lightweight calico.

Her dress is rich silk dupion.She has cotton lawn drawers, chemise and petticoat, trimmed with antique cotton lace, and finished with hand embroidery.

Her black ankle boots, her hair and face have been hand painted in acrylics, and sealed with matt varnish.

She was made using a reduced version of Dixie Redmond's Izannah Walker doll pattern.

I've had a lot of fun making her!!!
