More Photos of the Two Painted Composition Heads I Currently Have Available for use with My Izannah Walker Doll Making Kits

painted composition doll heads to use w/my izannah kit www.izannahwalker.com3/11/15 2nd update – both heads are now sold.  Thank you!  The sun is being much more cooperative today and providing nice soft light, just perfect for taking photos!  Photos have been something of a challenge for me lately, due to the 2+ feet of snow cover outside my door.  Not only has it made it impossible to take outdoor photos, but I can’t even open the barn door that I would need to walk through to get to all of my lighting equipment! Yes, I do actually own professional photography gear 🙂 , even if my photos don’t look like I do! – LOL

Sooooooooo, a few minutes ago I took additional photos of the painted heads that I posted yesterday.  I wish I could show them to you in person, because they look so much richer and more vibrant when they are right in front of your eyes.  They have a very subtle aged paint surface that does not show up well in photographs.  Actually the best way to see the paint surface is to go over to my eBay auction and use the zoom feature on the first photo of doll head #2.

HEAD #1 SOLD

Same information as yesterday’s post: If you are interested in purchasing this head please email me at paula@asweetremembrance.com or call me at 860-355-5709 during east coast business hours.  The head sells for $375.00 with the full kit or $340.00 if you already own one of my Izannah kits or classes.

Here is my painted composition head #1 sitting next to the real Isane.  This composition head was formed in a mold that I made directly from Isane, who is an authentic antique Izannah Walker doll in my personal collection.

I am excessively fond of the way this head turned out!  I debated long and hard about whether or not I should paint her and if I did, if I should offer her for sale, since technically she is not a perfect reproduction of the original Izannah Walker doll I made her mold from.  I’m extremely glad that I decided that a little variety is sometimes a very good thing. To enhance the baby like look of her face, I chose a rather uncommon Izannah hair style for her.  The Carmel Doll Shop once had a magnificent antique Izannah Walker doll with hair painted similarly.  If you frequent their website, you may remember her.  She was dressed in an amazing off white dress with a great deal of white braid work trim and she wore a necklace of white beads.  This hair style has very short wispy center parted bangs, with little fringes of hair at the temples brushed towards the face and six ringlets at the back of the head.  Six is a very unusual number of long curls for an Izannah Walker doll, it is much more common to see five or seven.  The large Izannah that I reproduce has nine.

Here is another view of Isane and my painted composition head #1.  The oil paint does look a bit differnet on the composition than it does on the pressed cloth heads, but the composition is still a nice alternative if you want to use my kit to make your own Izzy, rather than buying one of my more authentic all cloth reproduction Izannah Walker dolls.
