This is the doll before she was dressed. The arms and legs are joined with dental floss. Why? Because it's surprisingly strong and easy to find, that's why. The idea was to make a doll whose limbs would fall into natural poses when she was lain down or plonked in a chair. Actually, that's the idea behind a lot of my doll designs. It didn't quite work with this one. The stiffness of the fabric of her clothes and the lightness of the air-dry clay meant she was a little rigid. Ah, well.
That did make her ideal for a doll's doll, however.
