MALE "PORTRAIT" DOLLS
Several Years ago I was asked to make a portrait doll of a gentleman & his wife dressed in costumes they had while serving in Korea. A while back he contacted me as he had decided he wanted to have dolls of the whole family. Great...until I found out there are 8 of them! 3 Are men, and men are the hardest to do, so I have done them first. Guys are a challenge since their hair doesn't cover threads for needle sculpting, so ya gotta make it all behind the ears. Whenever I can I try to put a hat on guys. Picture shows the three men holding the photo given me to work from. There are 4 in the picture because the gentleman in the center is the father.
