I sketched the doll out on graph paper to the size that I wanted the doll and then used that to measure the doll as I went along.
In Tessie's case, she is 5 1/4" tall, so that's how tall she was on graph paper. It is all a matter of getting the proportions correct.
The head is about 9" high. The eyes are half way down on the head. The end of the nose is half way between the eye line and the tip of the chin....The lips are about 1/3 below the nose, leaving about 2/3 below.
Maybe this will help her and others that are working on dolls.
Since I am so late, I should explain. I had the Wednesday Witches here today....I had to clean and cook before they came and clean up after.
It's a messy job, but someone has to do it.
I was wandering around the house, looking for something to put on the blog...Slim pickings...
Want to see what I do when I am bored and don't want to do minis? Most of the light switch plates in the house have had a makeover...Since we were kind of on the subject of eyes....This is the one in the front hall.
I use Mod Podge and magazine ads on boring plastic covers and This is what happens... Hey! At least they aren't boring anymore....
Was someone asking what happened to the Terrible Two whilst I was entertaining?
Don't ask! Instead, ask what I will be doing tomorrow morning, bright and early?
Here's a clue to both questions....
See you tomorrow.
