Cindee Moyer Doll

Hot melt glued the moss hair in place, plus sculpted and painted the bird in hand, attached with copious amount of hot melt glue.

She looks nice.

Cindee Moyer Doll Hand

Finally successful in making the doll hand! This is about my sixth attempt. To turn the fingers I used a coffee stirrer and the eye end of a big needle, instead of the specialized "finger turning" tool.

The face sculpture still needs work. This is about my tenth attempt. Since I have mastered the doll hand, I think I will proceed with the rest of the doll, and leave the face alone for now.

The art doll mean while is not doing good. I need to improve on the face sculpture. This is about my fifth attempt.

My ultimate goal -(dream on) - is this:
