Scraphappy – Wood scraps

Bits and pieces

At the beginning of September, I travelled to Oregon, where I carved a dolly from scraps of at least three different kinds of wood – a Head-and-body of possibly Kauri;  arms and legs made from cherry dowels; and…

glued feet

…feet out of Basswood. I didn’t quite finish the carving in Oregon, so her feet were glued, pegged and taped in Oregon…

.

.

Dolly parts

…and finished back home in Quimperland.

.

.

Cousins

Opal and Agathe are curious about the new girl – if she is part Kauri, then she is kind of a cousin!

.

.

Varathane

I refined and sanded the feet, and coated all the bits in Varathane…

.

.

Drying

…and hung everything out to dry…

.

.

Painted

…before painting her features and feet.

.

.

Elastics

She was happy to get elastic joints…

.

.

Clothes

…then young human examined every dress in the Hitty wardrobe…

.

.

Dressed

…and chose this one…

.

.

Chequers

…and they went outside to play “Chinese Chequers”!
