Primitive pattern for black, painted, sanded dolls wanted

cathyMarch 7, 2001

I am looking for a pattern for the black primitive dolls that are painted then sanded and antiqued. They also have "real" looking hands and feet. I have searched high and low with no luck. Even just instructions would be helpful. Thanks!

Happy Crafting,

I made my own pattern up using my DD's hands as a pattern.

Well, I can help with the painting part. Use normal muslin, then coat with 2-3 coats of gesso. Apply acrylic paint...when dry sand. Then you can coat with Krylon matte spray to protect it. If you want the doll soft bodied, do the arms and legs seperately, and mask off the neck and only paint the head. I hope I've helped a little! I also suggest you join the vintageclothdollmaking list at yahoogroups. So many techiques and links to share!
