Icon Doll - In Progress

Thanks to some discussion and a challenge on the Wildart Dolls list, I signed up for an online mini class with Chaska (Mai Liis) Peacock entitled Icon Dolls. This is Chaska's interpretation of an icon, filled with tips and techniques, using a simple cone shape.

Following are a few photos of what I've done so far, though there's still a bit of work ahead of me.

Some of the materials yet to be added

Chaska encourages us to work intuitively, quickly, don't over-think the process. Though I laid out the base materials that I needed a week before the class started, all the colors, charms, and add-ons that give the personality or theme of the icon came after I started the prep work. Once I did the basic prep, and began sifting through my fabrics and papers, the icon let me know what she wanted to be.

Yes...my light cube is still in storage. I can't figure out where I put part of it. Better photos soon, I promise.

Love this dolly, Sue! Especially the face/wings and can't wait to see how you finish the rest of her; thanks for sharing her with us!
