the beginning of my altered doll - round robin

Here is the start of my altered doll for the round robin i am in with the Warehouseartchix ( ). I am a "guest" warehouse chick. you can see the dolls they started at their blog. my doll will be sent out today as soon as i find out who i am sending it to! i will be receiving Sandra's doll first. i met Sandra on Etsy when she purchased one of my blank manikins to altered (still have many more of those for sale @$9.00!) i can't wait to see what she's done with hers. i actually just sold an altered manikin, which i called "a woman's valet" to Amy's (my loyal customer!) sister, Jill. i will keep taking pictures as the robin progresses. My doll's face is from Lani Kent (ebay) and i glued it into a bottle cap and added glossy accent resin. then i glued the face onto a medallion thingy that i picked up at a flea market in California about 5 years ago (with a few others). then i took a wood stick (like a popsicle stick, but round and inserted it into the hole of the wooden spool. i added glue inside the spool along with a nut (as in hardware, not peanut) to keep the stick still. i next glued the medallion onto the stick. the last thing i did was glued the whole thing onto a very small plate for stablility.
