WIP Status Report

Now the parts are all made, legs, hands, head.  I will varnish them before painting, then paint and assemble.  The legs will have button joints, the arms will be simple linen tubes stuffed with sawdust.  I think the legs are a little out of proportion, too large, but I am betting the clothing will pull everything together.  He quit looking like Adolph, but now looks a bit like Nixon.  Oh well.  Morphing is what dolls do when they are under construction.

I know it's been done to death, but I do rather like the old salt shaker as a body.  Maybe that's a future project.  Even the trite and kitschy can be good, if it's done right.
