Work in Process, Families of Color
It has been on my mind to make peg doll families of varying ethnic backgrounds, sort of like my angels. I have a small collection of doll figures made of wood, fabric, leather and ceramic. I may use some of the design elements from this collection or they may just be a jumping off point. The blue faced doll is a kachina. I am linking up to All Spunk, No Junk Link Up Party. Check out the Twig and Toadstool blog.

The face on this African doll is quite dark and I chose to use a rich mahogany.
Even this Native American hanging doll's skin color is darker than most tribes. I chose a reddish brown.
The Asian skin was easy to match-alight tan.
Stay tuned for further photos as the doll families progress. I envision them on a seasonal or nature table or for use in imaginative play.
