Egyptian Paddle Doll

Project Description

What are you most proud of? being published every year since 1981 in international doll and craft magazine. And having a mummy sentback to Egypt and then creating one in miniatre for a museum. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Dont rush. delicate wood will split easily and that will ruin your project. Making sure that you seal the wood afterwards to keep the cells of the wood together will make it last along time.
