Prudence, a New Primitive Doll

Prudence is the newest primitive doll in the Old World Primitives Etsy shop this week.  She is a one-of-a-kind doll that I fully hand painted and dressed in a 19th century style dress that I made with tan calico fabric and antique lace trim. Her body is made of stuffed muslin, and her head is sculpted from Paperclay.

I thought you might also enjoy a peek at what she looked like as a work in progress.
