My Beautiful Mixed Media Victorian Mannequin Faced Art Dolls



I just love looking at pictures from museums displaying Victorian dresses on mannequins or headless dress forms and have wanted to create some dolls of my own like these. This time I decided to combine my mixed media Victorian collage art dolls with mannequin faces. This means they have the shape of a head and indentures of a face, but nothing is painted. Please meet Penelope, Pauline, and Page. I hope you love them as much as I do.
