The classic story by O. Henry comes to life in this lovely 17.5" figure. The young wife had but $1.87 to buy her husband a Christmas present. So she cut off her hair and sold it to buy the perfect watch fob for the pocket watch that had belonged to his grandfather. Alas, he had sold the watch to buy the perfect tortoise shell combs for her beautiful long hair.
With a little bit of paper mache, paper clay, painting, wire bending and pin pushing you can create this truly marvelous 12” snow gal. The only thing that is sewn on this fun project is the hat and it's by hand.
This beautiful 17" wall doll has a fabric body with paper clay arms that can also be sewn in muslin if desired. Clothed in a sparkle tulle dress over a scrim underskirt, her gentle face is gessoed and lightly painted with the features drawn on with a graphite pencil. The wings are created from a wooden heart that is textured with tissue paper and Mod Podge.
