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.
