Grodner Tal Doll -Work in Progress
UPDATE::: Just had to snap a quick pic of my pretty bouquet and little Grodner Tal with her newly attached limbs. Life is Good!
Hope everyone had a Happy Mothers Day!!!
I've finally gotten around at trying my hand on a "Grodner Tal" Doll. These dolls were carved completely out of wood in the early 19th century..... I cheated and started with a wooden finial and tweaked it a bit or alot, lol! Sure wish I had a lathe! I'm making mine with a "tuck-comb" hairstyle.
I'm carving her little legs and arms from clothes pins. Not sure how to attach yet?
Here's a picture of her so far.... (you can barely see the photo of an original in background).
I'll try to snap some pics of her arms/legs a little later, but right now my camera battery is charging.
Thanks for visiting!!! Hope everyone has a great weekend too!
