Progress of doll

Before talking about the doll, I have some exciting news to share! My dolls will be in the winter issue of Art Doll Quarterly. I already have the magazine and they did a beautiful job with the photography. The cover is a doll by Marilyn Radzat and it is gorgeous! There is a funny side to being in the same magazine with her, because she is the very reason I started doing Art Doll. Before making art dolls, I made soft dolls and bears. I saw her dolls and went out immediately to buy clay. I am a huge fan and just really admire her work. I have her as a link on my sidebar.
Time to embellish! My favorite part! The gathering has taken place.

The first layer is on and can you guess what it is?
Did you guess wrapping paper?
