General Craftage

At the beginning of the summer, Rosa and I vowed to make these dollhead paperweights from this craft book she has. Now that she has about a week left and I have 17 days, we finally got around to it.

First, we decapitated dolls that we bought for $.99 at the thrift store, and used a steak knife to saw off their necks.

Then, we filled the with plaster.

    I like how you included the fact that the knife was a steak knife. I think that adds a certain sadistic quality to our craft life.:)
