About dolly no name!

Hi Everybody!

I am back to show how my dolly no name (because I haven't decided on a name yet) is coming along....
Here is the beginning of her life.... salt dough coming together....

After that came the kneeding.....

Then I started making the dolly bits - I think it went quite well with most of the body parts but the face - that was a nightmare.....how do you get the face out of the mold without ruining the face? That was a question I was answering for about an hour!!! I was holding back from cursing as I didn't want my poor doll to be cursed before she was even properly born, so I didn't curse and didn't give up (very strange as I do so many times) in the end I succeeded and here are all the body parts now in their drying stage! I am a bit worried as I have a very warm flat and  the dough might crack because it will be drying to fast! 

Yes I know she has Dolly Parton boobies but there must be a bit of me on there ha, ha.....

I went to an art shop the other day and they gave me this to fix the dough....one is shiny and one is matt! I haven't decided yet what I want.....

The next phase of my dolly no name making will happen when it dries! Donna if you think that at this point I have to do something that I haven't done  let me know!
Hugs to all of you....


  1. She's looking fabulous Dolores, can't wait to see her completed :-) You couldn't fail to notice the boobs hehe

  2. sorry I forgot to say - if you use a mold line it with flour so the dough does not stick,

    she looks fab and I too make dolly Parton torso's

  3. Love it, I will be joining the dolly making frenzy sometime this week. Fab boobs, if they are good enough for Ms.Parton then they are good enough for salt dollies is what I say.x

  4. Oooh can't wait to see how she turns out and what you call her.

  5. This is going to be good watching the progress of this mysterious female. I look forward to the next stage.
    Thanks for following my adventures in CHA!
