The face is the most important feature of a doll - it is also the most challenging. Yet, surprisingly, there is very little instruction available on creating doll faces, which means that Creative Cloth Doll Faces fills a void. Author Patti Medaris Culea began her career in art as a portrait painter and she puts that experience to work when creating her doll faces. In this book, she shows readers a simple technique for easily creating faces using her step-by-step approach. She gives tips for how to divide the face into quadrants, graft features together and more. Every aspect of doll making is covered - from the basics to detailed techniques for making the various faces to instructions for putting a pattern together. Readers will learn how to use watercolour pencils, acrylics and fabric paints to colour a face; how to create a face using collage techniques as well as stamping and beading; and tips for working with stretchy fabrics to create indented eyes, separate eyelids and sculpted lips.
