The next step involved a second skin which gives you a nice smooth face. The first time I did one of Angela's dolls I didn't have the Clover iron that she suggests in her supply list. I do now and seriously this style of face is difficult without one. The iron helps to define the features and to smooth out the small creases you get at the edges of the face. I made this doll out of Kona cotton which was a bit heavy when it came to doing the second skin.
I also used Derwent Watercolour pencils this time and I much prefer them to Prismacolor pencils.
Here is Anya now. I have pinned on her head temporarily. I've wrapped a bit of fabric around her head to see what she will look like with hair.
A couple of people have suggested not putting the hair and hat on her and just leaving the scarf as they thought it suited better. What do you think?
I did a bit more stitching on the bottom of the coat...a bit more colour.
I also did a stem stitch along the front edge of the coat to finish it off.
I made up the baby carrier. I'm of two minds now whether I will add the baby to her back. I'm not sure it will suit her....decisions.... decisions:)
Hopefully I will have her finished this week as I have two other projects in the works.
