Tea Bags

This is a cloth doll made from recycled components.

Her clothing contains two different brands of tea bags (three different kinds of tea), parts of old jeans (they once were my favourite pair), a kilt and dental floss.  The dental floss was dyed using Bombay Pigmented India Ink and is used for the hair.

Face of TeaBag Art Doll

The skin was painted with watercolours and the face was done with pastel pencils.

The doll was made in response to a challenge  presented by All Dolled Up  doll club.



This is about the third try to paint a watercolour portrait of my great-nephew.  I still haven’t got him young enough but this is much better than my previous attempts.
