Angel paper doll

I haven't done much with my online class doll for the past 2 days. You know sometimes you get that feeling when you want to create what builds up inside you. Usually it happens suddenly and you just want to get it all out. Well I just felt like doing a paper doll today so this is what I made. I made her look quite traditional. First I gessoed the doll body then I painted her with Golden Interference gold paint. Added little bit of Delta Ceramcoat 14k gold paint as high lights. Added lace and gold microbeads as embellishments. I did her wings the same way but covered the whole wing with lace and brushed it with the gold paint and Decoart Starlite top coat which gave it a delicate glitter. If you don't have the Deco art top coat you could just mix up some glitter with any craft glue that dries clear and brush it on lightly. For the wreath I cut some yarn and stuck it on the paper circle with some beads and again brushed it lightly with the Starlite topcoat. I looked for some wreaths in the shops but couldn't find the right ones. Finally for her face I used a ready made mould to make the face with paperclay and painted it and stuck it on the head. For hair I used some yarn again. After making her up and because I had so much fun doing her I thought I would offer the pattern to you for you to make her up as you want. You can enlarge her if you want and embellish her as you want. If you don't have the mould to make her face not to worry you can draw your own and make her up that way.
