two DIPs for a Gritty Jane Klimt Challenge

Yes, I know, you haven't seen any dolls actually FINISHED yet, but I have a surprise up my sleeve
for the beginning of November.  You'll see.

As for the two new dolls in progress, they are based upon works by Gustav Klimt for a challenge that
Gritty Jane put up on Facebook.

First is Sonja Knips, an early Golden Era portrait he did of her.

The second is the nefarious Judith II after she has assassinated the Assyrian General.

a new doll in progress

I have changed a few methods--using silk interlock for her cloth over clay face...

and using quilter's sateen for the body....

she's in progress, she needs more hair and is awaiting 'extensions'...

and I have her posed for a proportion check before I finish stuffing and forming her body more.

Her name is Sarafina.  She's going to be done in all greys, white and black.  With help from Barb at Country Fabrics in her clothing choices when I get to them.  :-D
