Bad Dog! Artist Doll by Stephanie Novatski
Bad Dog! Artist Doll by Stephanie Novatski is a one of a kind hand made doll. She stands about 18″ tall and is fully armatured with articulated fingers. Her face is a unique sculpt not from a mold and is cloth over clay over cloth. Her hair is dyed curly wool sewn in place. Her dress is a lovely mini calico print as are her arms to give the appearance of sleeves. Her dress is trimmed with eyelet and vintage tiny buttons. Her Apron is a cotton print and is fully lined and trimmed with eyelet edging. She is also wearing eyelet bloomers and a lace trimmed petticoat. Her boots are made from real leather. She is holding her headless rag doll in one hand and her mischievous pup (inspired by my own) with the poor rag doll’s head in his mouth in the other! The doll and rag doll were made specifically for her.
I have been involved in needlework and sewing of all kinds since the age of five. I have actively been making dolls since 2004 and have recently expanded my interests into the world of Mixed Media. I love dollmaking because it offers the opportunity to use many of these skills in one project . I currently have a line of patterns available through DollMaker’s Journey and Designer Doll Patterns I am also available for classes. I live with my loving rescue dog, Diva and Husband Edward.
