I am going to document the creation of an art doll. I made a mermaid doll form, about 4" long. The form is half-polymer, half-fabric, a type which I sell occasionally on Etsy (look for busycrowstudio); and sometimes on eBay (look for serendipitydoo). The mermaid is posed lying on her tummy, with tail outstretched. This form has no hair, because it will be added last. Otherwise, it would only get in the way. I will probably do pure bead fringe for the hair, with some nice fibers blended in. The body is a deep blue color, and the batik fabric matches, but the fabric will be covered completely with bead embroidery.
