2 Izannahs, The same but different

Here are two new Izannahs. they came from the same mold, but look very different from each other. The way a head comes out of the mold changes each doll some. If you repair flaws in the cloth face, naturally, the face shape changes a little bit. Most faces will need some repair work, so it's not a bad thing, because it gives you a chance to get a doll with a different expression and a slighty different look. I'm still surprised how cloth and glue put into a form, and a little painting and TLC can transform into something beautiful. My favorite part of the doll making is the painting. It's the part that changes a plain white head that looks like a space alien into a real little person. The paint brings out what was hidden from our eyes. It goes around curves, across the high and low places on the dolls face, it gives deepness and soul to the eyes, a sweetness to the mouth , a soft blush to the cheeks that is so endearing. I hope I gave these two dolls all these things.
