Working on "Alice"

"Alice" is sporting beautiful light brown glass eyes
Hello, friends!
It has been a while since I wrote something new. I had to step away from my beloved dolls for a few weeks. However, now I am back and ready to pick up where I left off.

  My little "Alice" has been waiting patiently, until I got a special order from "Mohair & More" for her beautiful silken tresses. Now, as they are finally on her head, I find that the wait was worthwhile. Yes, I finally put the little lady together, although there is still a lot of work.
Alice is 23 inches (59 centimeters)

I need to decide on her dress now and I also started on her shoes, more about it in the next post. Here she is, so far, my little beauty!
I used "Fimo Puppen" polymer clay to sculpt her and painted her with  heat-set oil paints for healthy rose blush 
"Alice's" soft body is mounted on flexible plastic armature
(my favorite of late)
which makes it easily adjustable to
standing or sitting  position
I delight in her beautiful silken "Espresso" hair, however, it is too short and
I am thinking of the way I can add extensions
