Alabama doll wanna be.Tutorial

I started with one of my MJ. bodies. the mask is made from rigid wrap placed over an old metal head. As you can see there are 2 pieces to the head. I put 3 layers of rigid wrap.Drying in between layers. I glued the mask pieces front and back onto the cloth body/head. I then built up the side of the head where there was no mask. There was quite a bit of sanding to do.


  1. She's beautiful! truly a labor of love!

  2. Thanks Mary. Thought this might help others wanting to make a mask type doll.

  3. She is stunning!!! May I ask where you got the pattern for the body or did you design it yourself?
    Again, she is BEAUTIFUL!!!!
