Caterpillar Inspired Art Doll

I wanted to continue on with my Alice in wonderland themed dolls and had a vision for my version of the caterpillar. In the end,  the doll took a slightly different turn than my original sketch/idea  however sometimes I just start with a basic idea and let them guide me where they want to go. I can still, however see the caterpillar influence. I am very happy with how she turned out.

She is sculpted using cernit clay. Her hair is alpaca hair that was hand dyed green. This was not done by me but by the owner of the small farm that I purchased from. She is painted in acrylics, and sealed with a varnish for color protection.

For more of my art dolls please visit my art page. I post daily updates, and works in progress. I hope to continue with my Alice in wonderland theme. I have some visions for a mad hatter, white rabbit and maybe even a tweedle dee/tweedle dum. You can also view my alice, cheshire cat and queen of hearts there as well.

My newest sculpts  inspired by Alice in Wonderland. They were both hand sculpted using Cernit doll clay over strong wire armatures, hand painted in acrylics and varnished for color protection. Both have been sold.

You can follow my art dolls, costumes and works in progress on my art page.

I plan to make some more Alice inspired dolls soon. For now here is the Queen of Hearts and Alice.
