RAVEN Art Doll

Well once again, Arley has inspired me to try my hand at making my own Raven Doll.  Here she is:

 I used an east indian pillow cover that was in shades of purple and I add some dark dyes.  I kept some aside for appliqués on her head dress and sleeves.  She is all cloth, a stump doll with doe suede for face and black doe suede for hands.  I also gessoed the face before adding her features.  I was very happy with the results.
 I made her a paper "beak" mask that can be put over her face so that she looks more like a raven.

Here is the second version I made this time using a two tone sequin fabric for her body overlay:

This is the beginning of this particular face:

Here is her finished face:
See you all in a while.  I am back making teddy bears for now!
