Kokeshi Dolls in the Making

This weekend was alternately rainy/gloomy/icky so I spent the majority of it inside painting a small legion of Kokeshi dolls for the shop.

1 

Attaching the heads to the bodies.

2 

Adding cute hairpieces to each.

3
A couple of layers of gesso before painting.

4
Penciling in cute faces and kimonos

5 

Laying down the first skin tones.

6 

Colors and details are all finished out. 

8
Added a few coats of glossy varnish, ribbons and embellishments.  Done!

These nine darlings will be added to the shop tomorrow afternoon along side this lovely.  If you'd like to reserve one, please e-mail me:  sfizer@gmail.com

Enjoy!
