Artist doll by Lora Soling, OOAK artist doll, black doll, papier mache doll, Miss Iona Bennet is 13.5 inches tall, made of painted papier mache and cloth in the classic method for antique dolls of the 19th century. Iona's hair is of mohair. I make my dolls in the same manner that papier mache dolls were made in the nineteenth century. The head is from my own mold of my original sculpted head, (the hair is unique to this doll) as are the arms and legs, which are then painted, aged and applied with 4 layers of varnish. The body, upper arms and upper legs are made of fabric. Iona wears a fitted and flared dress of aged cotton and ribbon bows; underneath, camisole of vintage cotton, full petticoat and knickers. Necklace includes vintage beads and pendant.
