Day of the Dead
Day of the Dead Dolls
The Día de los Muertos dolls are characterized by colorful clothing and decorative skeletal face paint.
The head and appendages are resin, cast from an original sculpt and mold I designed. The body is handsewn using using 100% cotton and stuffed with batting. This gives these smaller dolls a 'rag doll' aesthetic. Her face has been hand painted in the traditional Día de Muertos style using acrylic paint. The doll is 12 inches tall. I have made numerous versions of these little skeletal rag dolls over the years.
The doll is 22" tall. It was hand sculpted using air dry clays Paperclay and Apoxie Sculpt. The clothing is hand sewn (the Smiths album cover a photo transfer onto fabric). The spectacles are fashioned from wire. His body is made using a wire armature so he can sit and stand with ease. He was made in 2010.
