Geisha Inspired Art Doll

    Newer Older

    An art doll in the style of Japanese Geisha is my entry for the PCAGOE November 2012 Asian Inspired Challenge.

    This doll stands on her own and is 9-1/2" tall. Her hair has been styled in a very intricate Geisha hair style and adorned with an elaborate style of beaded hair jewelry.

    Her robes were kept very simple. I used poly fiber fill to puff them out and hold the pieces in place as the doll was baked in the oven. After cooling the poly fill was removed. I wanted the robe to look like it was flowing. Gold leaf bits were applied to the robe for texture. I hand detailed the collar of the robe and under-robe with Pearlescent Liquid Acrylic.
