This is Greta. She started life as a Robert Raikes Hope doll. I really liked everything about her, except the cheap, straw-like wig she came with. So I took it off and decided to make her one.
When the oxide paint had cured overnight, I wrapped her up, covered her face and sealed her new hair with matte sealer.
I have to admit, I was so happy that it turned out so well. It's not perfect by far, but I love it. She got new hair and a new name. So long Hope. Now meet Greta!
I really wanted to do this again someday and got my chance with a Madame Alexander 95th Anniversary Raggedy Ann Woodkin doll. I do believe I blogged about this too. It was much more difficult, but so happy that I did it. Here's a quick photo so you can see how she turned out. She also got a new name.....Woody Ann.
I will be back soon to tell you about some very special new additions.
Blessings to you!
