These Doll Ornaments are smaller (lightweight) versions of my hand sculpted polymer clay "Du Buh Du Dolls". They are approx. 9.5-10" in length (not including the 2.5-3" ribbon) and the heads are approx. 1.5" just to give you an idea as to their size.
Each is dressed in various ivory and cream colored silks (metallic, satin, dupioni) and vintage lace/tulle (circa 1890-1930's). I gently cleaned each of the laces but please note that any water stain or hole in said lace was left as is. Each doll has been hand painted using fine artists acrylics. The frayed silk ribbon around their waists is made of dark salmon colored dupioni and their hair is made of English viscose (except for Poppy's blonde locks which is Tussah silk and camel).. Tiny sequins and glass beads are hand sewn on various parts of their dresses and I made the flowers (on dresses and in hair) out of watercolor paper. Each has been hand painted using pearlescent acrylic and dusted with tiny glass beads and/or ultra fine crystal. Their shoes are painted a pearl ivory color. The cotton ribbon from which the hang has been dyed with coffee and each says "Seasons Greetings~Christmas 2011~ Du Buh Du Designs".
Each doll holds a banner that reads:
“The holiest of all holidays are those kept by ourselves in silence and apart; the secret anniversaries of the heart.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
As with most of my previous ornaments they can be hung all year round or framed if you wish. Please keep these fragile art pieces out of direct sunlight, heat, and humidity to ensure that they last a lifetime :)
Dolls named after suggestions by my readers~thank you!
